I just made this for the first time today.  I wasn't sure about putting a tablespoon of onion powder in the soup.  That seemed like a lot to me.  Is that an error or does the recipe really call for that much onion powder?  I made it with less today and it tastes fine, but if you tell me that is correct, next time I will make it with that amount and see if it tastes better!

We're so glad you tried this recipe.  It's a great way to use canned peas!  The amount of onion powder is not an error.  One Tablespoon of onion powder is about the same as a medium chopped onion.  See the notes about substituting fresh onion.  The onion flavor can certainly be adjusted to fit your personal taste so using less onion powder is fine.
