Split pea soup made with smoked salmon instead of ham. Great smokey taste with a twist.


    1 1/2 c. split peas

    2 med. carrot

    1 c. yellow onion

    2 tbsp. lemon juice

    2 tsp. fresh dill weed

    12 oz. smoked salmon


1: in a 4-qt pot, combine peas, 8 cups water, carrots, celery and onion. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce to medium-low heat to maintain a gentle simmer, covering with lid slightly ajar. Cook for about 40 minutes, stirring often. Peas should be falling apart and tender. 2: Stir in lemon juice, dill and half of salmon, simmer for 5 more minutes. Remove pot from heat, spoon into bowls and top with remaining salmon, dividing evenly.

this is the recipe as written in Clean Eating magazine. The changes I made to it were: had to cook much longer, used way less dill, used less salmon and just regular smoked, as that's what I had on hand, and used already shredded carrots. This is an awesome recipe and you could also just toss everything into the crockpot and let simmer all day.
