2lbs worth of typically a Ham bone, but I got some pork neck bones from a local farmer. Note skip this ingredient for a vegetarian friendly version.
1 bag of split peas
16 ounces coconut milk
13 hours, 20 minutes
instructions for Broth if not making the soup as a vegetarian split pea soup:
Skip this section completely if going for vegetarian
Slow and low boiled pig neck bones with Szechuan salt for 12 hours (see salt page) until the meat comes off bones take out meat and bones
Instructions for Soup:
Choose favorite broth and bring to heat.
*I use a pork based broth as that is what I prefer.
A good vegetable broth makes this soup great as well.*
slow and low boil the split peas and some fresh turmeric about 2 hours
Once peas fall apart immersion blend the result.
Add minced meat from neck bones back in (Skip if vegetarian)
Add a coconut milk.
Simmer to finish for 30 minutes.
This is a very cost conscious soup with 6 lbs worth of neck bones for 10$ was a great deal from local farmer. I'm only using 1/2 of the bones for this soup. The split peas were 1$ a bag.
