Annie,
Here's the recipe for split pea soup.  I know you probably can't put the ham in or use the ham stock.  Substitute chicken, but it won't be the same.
 
2T butter
1 onion, diced
2 carrots, diced
1 stalk celery, diced
1 C diced ham or 2 ham hocks (and ham bone if you have one)
1/2 lb. split peas
1 bay leaf
ham stock (I use "Better Than Bouillon" brand ham base and mix into boiling water)
fresh ground pepper
 
Put the butter, onion, carrots and celery into a pot.  Sweat for 10 mins. do not brown.  Add the split peas, ham or hocks, bay leaf and pepper.  Add enough stock to more than cover the ingredients, as the peas will absorb a lot while cooking.  I don't add salt because the ham base is salty. If you use ham hocks, remove them when the split peas are cooked, remove the rind and the bones and add the meat to the soup.  This makes about the same quantity as the potato leek soup.  Easy!!!

Thanks, Lisa! I will save this recipe for when Bob and I are on our own, which is soon! I also like the Better Than Bouillon ham base...and it sure does look easy! Thanks again.

Annie,
You're welcome!  Glad that you and Bob will soon be on your own.  You can eat bacon every day!!
 
Those Better Than Bouillon bases are really good.......I have lobster, clam, beef and ham.

I made a pea soup last year some time and used a bit of Better than Boullon Ham Base.
 
It ruined the soup for me.  Tasted porky... fake porky.

That's too bad.  I always have ham or ham hocks in the soup.......but instead of using plain water, I use a little bit of the ham base in the water......for a little added taste and for salt.  I never found it to taste fake porky.

I may have used too much.  Don't remember.  I also usually have ham bones in the freezer from the Thanksgiving ham or I buy ham hocks.
 
The ruined soup was following a recipe that used frozen peas for that bright green color instead of dry peas which I prefer.  I should just trust myself and not use new recipes that sound iffy.

We're talking Split Pea Soup......I never, ever heard of anyone using frozen or fresh peas!  Unfortunately the COLOR of split pea soup is not very beautiful......but the taste!  Ah the taste!  Is wonderful!

I know!  But that recipe I tried wasn't split pea... just pea.  Yucky, porky tasting pea.
 
My split pea soup is divine.  I don't do anything special to it.

Went to Farmerbrown's Little Skillet, a take-out lunch place serving expensive soul food in SF.  They're well loved around here.  I got their shrimp and grits, which were surprisingly bland (and I'm not a big spice fan!), but they had hot sauces available.  Grits were nice and gooey with cheese. http://www.littleskilletsf.com/#eat-together
