Week 14 Bean Challenge: 1 Dinner a Week

I am alone in my love for split pea soup.

The first time I ever made split pea soup for my husband, I discovered he didn't like split pea soup. I wound up eating the whole double batch myself. For days.

Tonight's bean challenge lived up to its name: challenge. Vegetarian split pea soup & quesadillas. Since split peas are a legume, I decided it qualifies for the bean challenge.



I promise you, it was delicious. The kids thought otherwise. "What is this slimy green stuff?" "Yucky!", and on and on...



By the way, the quesadillas were a hit.

Am I alone in my love for split pea soup?

Micaela, as your husband, I would like it known in the blogosphere, that while I don't like split pea soup, I do, in fact, enjoy its lesser known legume cousin, whole pea soup.

i started life not liking split pea soup, until Sarah made it with some very good ham chunks. It's very good!

I like split pea soup! I didn't as a child, but it's grown on me. I think the cookbook "1,000 Vegetarian Recipes" has a good version. My favorite, though, is made with a ham bone and chunks of ham in it.

You are not alone. I love split pea soup (the vegetarian variety, that is). I've been told that children need to have a food presented to them about 15 times before they'll try it - and maybe even like it. As for husbands, well, whole pea is good, too.

Very nice blog - I look forward to exploring!

My kids both like split pea soup as much as I do. I do usually make it with a ham bone though, although my mom recommended a vegetarian version with ginger I've been wanting to try.
