Slow Cooker Split Pea Soup

Ingredients

  • 1 pkg. (16 oz.) dried green split peas, rinsed
  • 2 cups cubed fully cooked ham (we used ham from the “Brown Sugar-Bourbon-Glazed Ham” recipe
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 cup julienned or chopped carrots (we chopped our carrots)
  • ½ tsp. dried rosemary, crushed
  • ½ tsp. dried thyme
  • 1 carton (32 oz.) reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 cups water

Directions

  1. Using a 4- or 5-quart slow cooker, add all the ingredients to it, stirring to combine. Put a lid on the slow cooker and let it cook on LOW for 8 to 10 hours or until the peas are tender.

Serves 8.

This is such a scrumptious, filling and satisfying soup to have on a cold day. As the soup cooks, the house gets filled with all the aromas from the soup which just gets you that much more excited to eat this when it’s done cooking. The soup has a smokiness and a light sweetness to it that we think comes from the ham. The onion still has a little bit of bite to it even after all the time spent cooking it. You could use other types of cooked ham but we think the soup tastes the best when the ham from the “Brown Sugar-Bourbon-Glazed Ham” recipe is used in it.

Take care everybody !
