    No substitutions necessary! I did need an additional 25 mins of cook time but otherwise no issues - such a great, filling, rich soup!

    Fantastic recipe! It was easy to prepare and delicious on a cold day. If you wanted to add some extra protein and thicken up a bit, you could serve / mix with quinoa.

    Easy and delicious! Rec'd topping with fresh Parmesan! My modifications...substituted celery for green peppers and added more fresh garlic and dried thyme. Also, sauteed the vegetables in olive oil before a adding water and bay leaf. Suerte!

    I use a very similar recipe...but no potatoes...I shred and add 3 cups of zuchinni at the end of cooking. Lowers the calories and gets a healthy veggie in the kids. I shred and freeze my extra zuchinni in the summer for this soup. I also sometimes use half yellow split peas...makes the soup a lovely color. I also use colored peppers if I can...red in particular.

    THIS IS A GREAT RECIPE BUT I DID SUBSTITUTE CELERY FOR THE GREEN PEPPER. IT WAS PERFECT FOR MY SON WHO IS GLUTEN INTOLERANT. MY ENTIRE FAMILY ENJOYED THE DELICIOUS VEGETARIAN MEAL.

    I love this recipe! It is lovely as is, but I enjoy it made with a vegetable or ham stock (for the non-veggies) instead of water, and leave out the bell peppers. I used sweet potatoes instead or white, and it came out great, a lovely salty/sweet combo!

    We love split pea soup and have it frequently in the winter served with garlic toast or corn bread. I've never tried it with bell peppers - I've always used celery for flavor instead which I end up removing if it's too stringy. I also add some marjoram and a couple of bay leaves. In a pinch, you can used instant mashed potatoes, but the cubed potatoes are really good. Try mushing it up in the pot with an immersion hand blender - saves having to cut up the veggies and purees it. Yummy!

    TVP is vegetable protein. It is sold dry and in medium sized chunks. It is sold in health food markets usually in bulk. The recipe that pulls up for me for Vegetarian Split Pea soup does not call for TVP??? I would like the recipe which includes TVP. ???help???

    I believe it is textured vegetable protein.
