Erbsensuppe is one of the true classics of traditional German cuisine and popular as ever. As most Germans maintain a strong regional identity, I don’t reserve for myself that this is the one and only traditional German pea soup recipe. That said, I compared several recipes with my own version and the ingredients are the same.
Where soups vary is their consistency, some like more puréed than others. What also changes is the type of Wurst (sausage) added to the soup. As you know every region has its own Spezialitäten (specialties).
