Snert

Snert is the dutch word for pea soup. It’s a wholesome meal that’s very tasty. I make lots of it every winter and wanted to share my family recipe. This might be a bit different from other recipes, but it’s the way I’ve made it for many years. Make sure you’ve got a large pan, as this recipe is enough for 10 to 12 liters!

ingredients:

  • 4 L water
  • 750 Gr split peas
  • 10 stock cubes
  • 4 onions
  • 4 carrots
  • 4 big potatoes
  • 1 celeriac
  • ½ a head of celery
  • 750 Gr pork meat (with or without the bone, just what you prefer)
  • 2 rookworsten
  • 250 Gr bacon, in cubes
  • few bay leaves

Directions:

Bring the water to the boil. Put in the 10 stock cubes and the split peas. Boil it over a low heat for 2 hours.
Chop the vegetables and the meat into cubes. Pour in the vegetables and the bay leaves. Let it boil for another hour. Stir every now and then.
Put the meat (except the rookworst) in and let i boil for another hour. Put in the rookworst and let it boil for 10 minutes.
That’s it, your snert is done.
