Chef Tips

Preparation

Step 1

Heat a large pot oven medium heat. Add about 1 tablespoon of olive oil and sauté the sausage until browned and some of the fat has rendered. About 1-2 minutes. Remove the sausage into a bowl.

Step 2

Sweat the onions, carrots, celery in the pot and season with salt. About 5-6 minutes. Add in the smoked paprika and cook until fragrant; about 30 seconds. Add in the split peas, chicken stock, water and thyme. Season with salt and taste. The liquid should not taste too salty here, but seasoned where the salt can carry and get you a nice finished product at the end. Bring to a simmer and partially cover and cook for 10 minutes.

Step 3

Add in the potatoes and cook until tender; about 10 minutes Season the soup with lemon juice and stir in the dill.
