Split Pea Soup!



Hi Housewives!

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!
