A Split Pea Soup Success!
Mostly improv based loosely on a recipe from epicurious- I did not have enough onion, and none of the shallots suggested t brown in butter before tossing in. I use instead mushroom and celery, and the flavor came from some left over Christmas Ham. Also put in chopped cilantro (in place of chives) and my own basil
I am finding more and more soup is basically whatever you can find in your kitchen
