Split Pea Soup

How can I get my pea soup smooth, without having to put it in the blender?

You can use an immersion (stick) blender and blend it right in the soup pot. Without processing, split pea soup will not be smooth. It still tastes good without blending, but the soup then has a rustic texture. (09/17/2009)

I actually prefer it a little on the chunky side rather than smooth. I have noticed it gets less chunky if you simmer it longer. I have never made it in the crockpot so I don't know how that works out. Wonder if a potato masher would work to make it smoother for you? An immersion stick blender as stated previously is really great for soups if you have one. (09/17/2009)

Just cook it longer. I simmer mine for about 2-1/2hrs. It always comes out smooth. Make sure you stir and scrape the bottom when doing it about every 45min or so. It's not necessary, but it does seem to get really thick on the bottom. (09/17/2009)

I am definitely bookmarking this page. I've already had dinner, but this page is making me hungry :-)

I have a question, though. Is split pea soup "supposed" to be really smooth? Or is it supposed to be a bit on the lumpy side? I know it is a matter of preference with a lot of people, but what might be considered normal? Thank you! (10/01/2009)
