If you are looking for a meatless but not vegetarian recipe, use a 48-ounce can of chicken broth and 2 cups of water instead of 6 cups water.

Substitute 2 cups peeled and chopped butternut squash for the sweet potato.

Add 1 cup diced fully cooked smoked ham with the peas for a traditional split pea soup.
