Split Pea Soup

COOK TIME
1 Hr

This classic Split Pea Soup is chock full of fresh ingredients and wholesome good taste! We like to serve it up with crusty bread to soak up every last drop!

What You'll Need:
  • 10 cups water
  • 1 pound fully cooked boneless ham, chopped
  • 2 (12-ounce) packages dry green split peas
  • 3 potatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 carrots, chopped
  • 2 celery stalks, chopped
  • 3 chicken bouillon cubes
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
What To Do:
  1. In a soup pot over medium-high heat, combine all ingredients and bring to a boil.
     
  2. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer 55 to 60 minutes, or until vegetables are tender.
Note
  • You can use leftover ham in this, or buy it right from the deli case. Don't forget to refrigerate any leftovers! And if the soup is too thick after it has been chilled, just stir in some water when rewarming it to achieve the desired consistency.
     
  • Top off your homemade soup with some homemade croutons -- they'll think you're a kitchen wizard!

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I used 8 cups of water and a 32 oz. carton of Fat Free Chicken Broth instead of 10 cups of water and 3 chicken bouiion cubes - My family LOVED it! Even my picky eaters had large bowls of this soup and requested that I make it more often.

This is all great!

Ooh it's so good

I rinse and sortpeas follow:directions I always use soup base,never use bouillon(too salty,not enough flavor) and would omit the salt (theres enough in the soup base) Also I add garlic powder and ham bone for extra flavor.Remove let cool then remove more ham,put back in soup You can always add salt to taste when served. You can always add salt to taste when served.
