Split Pea Soup

Difficulty: Easy

A delicious soup that is cooked low and slow for a spectacular creamy pea soup


  • 1 yellow onion; diced

  • 2 carrots; diced

  • 3 stalks celery; trimmed & diced

  • 3 cloves minced garlic

  • 1 Tbsp olive oil

  • 1 pound dry green split peas; rinsed

  • 1 Ham bone (leftover would be great! But you could always buy ham hocks in the grocery store or add diced ham)

  • 4 cups chicken broth

  • 3 cups water

  • 2 bay leaves

  • Salt & Pepper to taste

  • Croutons (optional)


  • In a large pot drizzle the oil and heat over medium high until glistening. Add in the onions, carrots, celery, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook 5-7 minutes or until veggies are tender
  • Stir in the garlic and saute until fragrant; about 30 seconds
  • Add in the rinsed split peas and the ham bone (or hocks) along with the broth, water, and bay leaves. Stir to combine
  • Reduce heat to a simmer and cover for one hour, make sure to stir periodically
  • Remove ham bone and shred the meat; add back into soup. (If using diced ham instead add it in at this point)
  • Top with croutons and enjoy!
