Pea soup made from real split peas is delicious. Tell us your recipe and what you didn't like about it. We can go from there.

there are multiple ways of making pea soup but the easiest way is to use either a ham bone or cottage roll juice to start (as long as the cottage rol juice is not to salty) I do prefer ham bones for my pea soup.
First add 4 liters of water and ham bone to a pot and bring to a boil then reducing your heat to a simmer for 1 hour. After 1 hour you add your split peas 5 to 6 cups depending on the thickness of soup you prefer, 1 cup of chopped onions, 1 cup of shredded carrots,  1/2 tsp black pepper to the broth and continue to simmer for another hour stirring every ten minutes. The stirring is very important especially as the peas cook and begin to soften they will sink to the bottom and burn the soup. When peas are cooked test for salt flavour and season to desired taste.

I would impart my recipe except, according to my wife, I can't cook.  I think she's wrong though, my KD is to die for and my Ichi Ban noodles are the envy of many a French Chef. :D

Add a couple Bay leaves, and the spice  Thyme.
Thyme is good and has a place in all bean dishes,
in the same way that Basil is the go to herb for all tomato dishes,
even in salad.
A slow cooker can save alot of stirring toward the end.
Remember add no salty ingredients until the soup is done.
