  1. I made this cow heel soup today and this is the best recipe I’ve had. The recipe was easy to follow. I substituted the split peas with lentils instead and still it was great! This soup was on point and I the best thing about it is that I didn’t need anything else after having it. I loved loved loved it. I look forward to trying all the recipes on this website. Thank you so much sharing! Merry Christmas everyone!
