Another important point that is often argued about is how much to cook pea soup? If you are using split peas, which were previously soaked in water, or crushed peas that do not need to be soaked, then it’s worth cooking for no more than half an hour. If you took whole peas, then it is necessary to boil it in broth for more than one hour. Always monitor the state of peas in the cooking process.
