    Vegetarian if you use water instead of chicken stock.

    I used rutabaga instead of potato and the soup was excellent. Will be my go-to for split pea soup now.

    Pg. 73 I used this recipe as the base for making a split pea and ham soup. It was, by far, the best version I have ever tasted. Added the ham bone with the water at the beginning and then added about a pound of chopped leftover ham when the second portion of split peas were added (after about 40 minutes). Didn't have oregano, but marjoram was an excellent substitute. I left out the potatoes only because I wanted to freeze the leftovers. Will make again!
