Split Pea Soup

I have an odd eater for a child.
She LOVES spinach, lima beans, tofu, cabbage, and pickled beets.
She does NOT like scallops and lobster however. This makes for a much smaller grocery bill!

When she was very little, she came to me and asked me to make her split pea soup. To this day, it's still her favorite. This recipe is the one we came up with together.
She is an awesome kitchen helper!

1 (1 lb) bag of dry split peas
1-1 ½ Cups diced cooked ham
1 Chicken bouillon cube
1 small onion (diced)
½ Cup shredded carrots
2 Cloves garlic, minced
6 Cups water
Salt and Pepper to taste

1. Rinse peas, sort thru to make sure there are no tiny rocks!
2. Add all ingredients to a big pot and bring to a boil.
3. Continue to cook for hours until peas create a “mush” and carrots are pretty well dissolved into the soup.
4. Season with salt and pepper.


Split pea soup ingredients...minus the onion. Why do I always forget something!

You can always add more broth if you would like it thinner
