Split Pea and Ham Soup


Split Pea and Ham Soup

1 Hr

If you're like us, a big bowl of pea soup is satisfying enough to be a whole stick-to-your-ribs meal. And with the additional ham that's in this one, you're in for a filling treat in every spoonful!

What You'll Need

  • 8 cups water
  • 1 pound fully-cooked boneless ham, cut into ½-inch chunks
  • 1 (24 ounce) package dry split green peas
  • 4 large potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 2 carrots, cut into ½-inch chunks
  • 2 celery stalks, cut into ½-inch chunks
  • 2 chicken bouillon cubes
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper

What to Do

  1. In a 6-quart soup pot, combine all ingredients over medium-high heat and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer 50 to 60 minutes, or until vegetables are tender.


You can use leftover ham in this, or buy it right from the deli case. Don't forget to refrigerate any leftovers! And if this is too thick after it has been chilled, just mix in a little water when rewarming it to achieve the desired consistency.

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

I did this recipe in the crock, turned out very good!

Is there a crock pot or slow cooker version of this recipe?

One exception. When you cook your ham in water stovetop save the broth. Chill it to remove the fat then use it instead of water,chicken boullion cubes, and salt.
