Not my favorite split pea soup

Last week, I tried another selection from the samples Dr. McDougall’s sent me.

Split Pea soup is something I never would’ve tried in my previous life but once I finally did, it quickly became one of my favorites!


I heated this up alongside a slice of whole wheat toast, which I dipped in the soup.


The taste was okay, but I prefer a thicker split pea soup. This was very brothy. I think I prefer ones like Health Valley and Amy’s brand which are “creamier” in texture.


I can’t wait to try the rest of the soups. Thanks again, Dr. McDougall’s 🙂

What is your favorite soup?

It’s hard for me to narrow down but I’d say split pea, vegetarian chili and minestrone are all on my list!

    i haven’t tired this one yet but i really liked the lentil and my hubz really enjoyed the vegetable

  2. I’ve never seen that kind. I actually haven’t had pea soup since living at home with my parents…I miss it with home-made dumplings and chunks of veggies in a really thick …pea-soupy thing haha…oh memories :(. I did pick up AMY’s Split Pea soup the other day…hopefully it’s good – ever tried?
