It’s soup season once again and today’s recipe is for slow-cooked split pea soup. The holidays are soon approaching and with that brings a ton of leftover. If you make a ham the leftovers can easily be used to make a yummy split pea soup. The ham bones are great too for added flavor. I usually make this in the slow cooker but it can b done on a stovetop as well.
- a bag of dried green split peas
- 1 ham steak (cubed) or leftover ham with ham bones/hock
- 1 small onion chopped
- 2 cloves of minced or smashed garlic
- 3 medium carrots sliced
- 3 celery stalk chopped and remember to add some torn up leaves
- 6 cups of water
- 1 can of chicken broth
- salt and pepper to taste
Rinse over the green split peas and take out any pebbles. Then combine all ingredients in slow cooker and stir. Cook on low for 8-10 hours. That’s it! Easy! Go out and enjoy your day and come home to a hearty, healthy, warming your soul soup!
You can add quartered potatoes to slow cooker if you like. Enjoy!
