A hearty Winter’s Meal.


Peas Soup and Doughboys

It was the early French settlers who introduced this hearty pea soup to the 

people of Newfoundland or as they called the island Terre-Neuve. Even today, 

it is nice to come home to the tantalizing aroma of delicious pea soup simmering 

on the stove on a cold crisp winter’s day.

Soaking : 6-8 hours 

Cooking Time: 3 hours2 cups salt beef, diced (or a ham bone) 

2 cups yellow split peas 

1 cup onions, chopped 

1 cup turnip, diced 

1 cup carrot, diced 

½ cup celery, chopped (optional) 

Pepper to taste 

Doughboys 

1½ cups all purpose flour 

1 tablespoon of baking powder 

½ teaspoon of salt 

½ - 1 cup water or milk 

Soak salt beef and peas separately in cold water overnight. (soaking is not 

necessary for ham bone.) 

Drain meat and place in large saucepan. Add 8 cups of cold water; bring to a 

boil. Simmer 30 minutes.

    Yummy, your pea soup would be delicious, but without the beef. I will definitely make it.
