After 35 minutes, may add meat. Continue to simmer until peas are dissolved. Cook for an additional 35-40 minutes until slightly thickened.

Turn off, cool. Soup will thicken as cools. If prefer thicker add instant mash potato flakes, thinner add water, milk or stock. Season with hot sauce, pepper, and season salt. Serve with biscuits, dinner rolls, or corn bread.

Rated  by cera21 on 5/21/2010 My husband loves peas, that's why I made it, but he didn't love this. I thought it was pretty bland and the texture was too much like pureed baby food. I added chicken broth to make it a little more soupy and lemon pepper snd greek seasonings to help w/the flavor.
