Dutch Pea Soup (Snert)

Dutch Pea Soup or Snert, as it is known in the Netherlands, is thick, creamy and filling.  Perfect for Dutch winter weather, which is typically rainy, windy and grey, it’s also a favorite of ours, especially when winter storms hit.  We’ve lightened it up a bit by omitting the potatoes, commonly included in many recipes, and upped the protein content with three different meat components.  Dutch Pea Soup is delightful for dinner, perhaps as a first course before Austrian Smoked Pork Chops, and it makes for a great lunch too.
