A few months ago, or a year, I was making pea soup with split yellow peas and ham broth in my instant pot pressure cooker.

I found out how much time and how much water/broth to peas.  It was perfect.  I remember sharing the numbers somewhere on permies with the idea that I could just look it up again later.

I can't find it now.

Can you help me?

(I might have shared it on food52, but maybe not)

yep. 2 cups split peas to 6 cups broth was perfect.



I wish I had written down how many min.

it was five.


... but things turned out too liquid this time.  I doubled the recipe so it was 4 cups peas, 12 cups water.  I think 4 to 10 would have been better.

I made a really good batch recently.

I got a medium-sized ham hock and bone from a ham, put it in a pot with 500g red lentils, and filled it up with water to about an inch above it. Once they had been cooked and the ham was soft and shreddable I added onions and carrots, and stirred through some kale at the end too.

split peas are really inconsistent, I think part of the pea abrades off to thicken the soup just like you blended a portion of it--but never the same amount. Beans don't do that because they still have the shell holding them together.

That is the secret to thicker soup, an immersion blender!  a few seconds in the pot and soup turns into stew!
