Miso paste enriches this soup with a deep, savory flavor and enhances the creamy texture of the peas. We think it's a must, but you can use an extra 1/2 teaspoon of kosher salt instead.
5 center-cut bacon slices
1 cup chopped onion
1 cup chopped celery
1 cup chopped carrot
5 garlic cloves, chopped
2 tablespoons white miso (soybean paste)
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 pound green split peas
6 cups unsalted chicken stock
1 bay leaf
Est. added sugars 0g
How to Make It
Place bacon in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat; cook 5 minutes or until crisp. Remove bacon with a slotted spoon; crumble.
Add onion, celery, carrot, and garlic to drippings in pan; sauté 5 minutes or until slightly tender. Add miso, salt, pepper, and peas to pan; sauté 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Add stock and bay leaf; bring to a boil over medium-high. Partially cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer 1 hour or until peas are tender. Discard bay leaf. Stir in bacon.

And super easy! I made this on a Sunday for Monday night's dinner. I just kept the bacon bits separate and puts those on after reheating. A quick side salad and CL's Herbed Breadsticks made for a quick and easy meal.
