Introduction

After a winters walk, some iceskating or just anything that makes you want a simple good meal, this is lovely. If you make it in the morning, it's very easy to heat again. Don't try to eat it as a starter, it is a proper meal in itself. As a child, we always use to have pancakes (proper ones, not american breakfast) for afters.

Method

Snert (Dutch Split Pea Soup) is a community recipe submitted by Het and has not been tested by Nigella.com so we are not able to answer questions regarding this recipe.

  • Put split peas, water, pork chop, streaky streaky bacon in a pan. Bring to the boil. Skim off any froth on top. Put the lid on the pan and leave on a slight boil for 45 minutes. Stir occasionally (it will burn if you don't).
  • Take the chop out, debone the pork chop and cut al the meat thinly. Add onion, leak, carrot, rooted celery and potato to the boiling broth and leave to cook for another 30 minutes. If you've found smoked sausage, add it as well.
  • When everything is done, take out the streaky bacon (and the smoked sausage) and cut thinly. I like to blend some of the soup at this point, makes it more creamy.
  • Add your stock cubes and the meat and taste! I'm used to serving this with salty soy sauce (Indonesian style) on the table. I love a little splash of it on my soup.

    What 1 Other has said

    • This is an ace recipe. However, I can recommend adding a whole (smoked) eisbein at the start, remove fat/skin and bone when deboning the chop). Also, serve with German black bread with a sliver of cured ham (Black forest, Parma, Serrano). Delicious.
