We know, we know, it’s a funny color and reminds you of your Great Aunt Marge’s vintage cookbooks—but hear us out. Split pea soup is actually delicious (not to mention simple) when made with a few additional ingredients to maximize its flavor. Our recipe is dressed up with sweet, tender carrots, smoky bacon and, yep, an entire can of beer for a modern take on a classic, comforting soup.
Psst: The beer is what gives this soup a well-rounded flavor without a ton of effort on your part, but if you want to skip it, you can use an equal amount of water or chicken stock instead. The croutons (texture) and sherry vinegar (acid) are optional…but not reallllly.
