A lighter take on classic split pea soup, using bacon and Vanns Smoked Spanish Paprika to provide a nice smoky flavor.
Split pea soup is a classic - it's hearty, warming, and wonderfully savory, and typically made from very affordable and easy to find ingredients. Sometimes it can get a little heavy with that salty ham hock thrown in, but this version lightens things up a bit by using bacon and Smoked Spanish Paprika to build that similar smoky, porky flavor. A bonus: bacon is much easier to find in grocery stores than smoked ham hocks! Plus, this recipe is easily made vegetarian with the removal of the bacon -- the Smoked Spanish Paprika does a great job bringing the smoke all on its own.
Both of these recipes are kind of magical -- they take super simple ingredients like water, flour, butter, salt, and Vanns Smoked Spanish Paprika and turn them into beautiful, impressive golden brown focaccia and a deeply orange-red, perfectly flavored smoked paprika butter to be spread on top. It makes a great appetizer for any occasion, but be careful that your guests don’t fill themselves up on it! It’s a little bit addictive.
