If you want to make it heartier then feel free to throw in some ham bones to add flavor and make it meatier. Do you have some leftover ham bones? If so, add them to the soup to make it even nicer.

To make this flavorful soup you need to combine chicken broth, turkey, split peas, vegetables and basic seasonings, namely bay leaves, salt and black pepper. A little leftover ham or ham bone is optional but worth adding because it makes the soup even nicer. Add some leftover vegetables to the soup if you wish, and a little minced garlic too perhaps. If you want to make this a more filling meal, add a toasted roast beef sandwich, a grilled cheese toastie or even a fresh tossed salad if you want something cold on the side. This soup makes a filling lunch, especially if the weather is cold outside and you want to warm yourself up, but it is equally satisfying served for dinner and the whole family will agree.
