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.
