Homemade Split Pea Soup

My children don’t like peas so I made this soup and called it “Shrek” soup. They love it! Now they are eating their veggies and they don’t even know it!

Split Pea Soup Ingredients:

  • Meaty ham bone
  • 8 cups water
  • 1 pkg split peas
  • 1 cup carrots (grated)
  • 1 cup onions (diced)
  • 1 cup celery (chopped)
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper

Place all ingredients into a large pot and cook on low heat for about 3 hours. Most of the meat will fall off the bone while cooking. You should remove the remaining meat from the bone to put back into the soup and dispose of the bone.

For a finer, smooth consistency place soup into a blender after cooking and “pulse” until you get your desired consistency.

You can also cook this soup in the crockpot. About 3 hours on high or 5 to 6 hours on low will do the trick.

    I like to make split Pea soup without the ham or bacon or any other meat. It’s just as good. I’ve also added diced sweet potatoes and parsnips. Using yellow split peas is good also. Can add fresh garlic or even the powder. You can add them to vegetable soup. Lots of ways to make it good.
