Split Pea & Ham Soup

Ever since I was a kid I have love Split Pea & Ham Soup. I always looked for the chunks of ham and carrots. Here is my recipe that I think that you will like.


1 Cup Chopped Onion

1 Teaspoon Olive Oil

1 Pound Dried Split Peas

1 Pound Diced Ham

3 Diced Carrots

1 Chopped Garlic Clove

½ Teaspoon Salt

½ Teaspoon Freshly Ground Pepper

In a medium pot, sauté the onions and garlic in the olive oil on medium heat. Add the split peas, ham and 6 cups of water to cover the ingredients. Add the carrots. Season with the salt and pepper. Cook covered on medium low for 2 ½ hours until it is just green liquid and no peas left. You may need to add more water as the soup continues to cook. When the soup is done turn off the heat and let stand for 20 minutes so that it will thicken. When you are ready to serve heat through so that you will be serving warm soup. Serves 4
