Try this yummy ham and split pea soup recipe this winter season. It is great with leftover ham and is really filling for the whole family including babies

Split peas can be bought at any time of year for about the same price.  This mixed with carrots and potatoes (both in season in the fall and winter months) and ham (that was a bit we had left over) makes for a great tasting and small effort healthy meal.  This can be prepared with or without the ham; the ham just adds a little flavor.  If you don’t have the ham, you can make it without and just use a bit more salt and pepper.

Ingredients

1 lb of Dried Split Peas
1 onion Chopped
3 Carrots; cut into slices or chunks (you can add more if you would like)
4 Medium Potatoes cut into pieces (you can add more if you would like)
2 Slices of Ham cubed

 

Directions

Open Package of Peas and sort to be sure there are no rocks or other items in them.  Wash and cover with water and let soak overnight. If you don’t have time to soak them overnight that is fine, it will just take a little longer to cook them since they need to soften more.

In the morning drain water and refill adding cubed ham and boil for 1 hour (could be up to 3 if you did not soak overnight).  Add onion and cook for 30 mins.

Add Carrots and cook for 15-20 minutes.

Add potatoes and cook until soft.  Add Salt and pepper as needed for taste.

Enjoy!!!!  This ham and split pea soup recipe is great with grilled cheese or rolls or biscuits.
