When I was
a kid, my mom was famous for her "hot dog" soup, which I refused to
even try because didn't eat anything that looked green and slimy.
I was in my late teens before I even chanced a sip -- and
have been hooked ever since. My mom, Nomi, got the recipe from
her mother-in-law, my Nana Mary, but it requires two days of cooking.
My recipe is simpler and quicker and still very tasty because I
use their trick of substituting kosher hot
dogs for the traditional ham.
Simple to make -- tastes great!
tsp. olive oil
1 medium onion, finely chopped
3-4 garlic cloves, minced
medium carrots, sliced 1/4-inch thick
oz. split peas, rinsed and drained
kosher hot dogs, quartered lengthwise, then sliced to make little wedges
cups organic chicken broth or stock
1 tsp. sea salt (or more to taste)
-In a soup pot, heat olive oil at medium heat, add chopped
onions, sliced carrots and minced garlic and saute until they soften
and start to carmelize (5 to 10 minutes).
-Add rinsed split peas and toss around to mix with other ingredients.
-Add chicken stock, salt and pepper. Cover (slightly ajar) and boil
vigorously 30 minutes.
- Turn down heat. Add hot dog wedges and simmer 30 minutes or until
peas are broken down into mush. Add water or broth to thin as necessary.
salt and pepper to taste.
usually reduce heat to lowest setting and let it sit
for an hour or more to help blend the flavors.
6-7 pints. Enjoy!
