Split Pea Soup

This soup, when you puree it, is nice and thick. Perfect in the winter for lunch. I try to use the least amount of salt that I can.


Split Pea Soup

1 T olive oil
1 pkg. split peas (rinse)
1 cup diced ham (no salt needed because of ham)
1 medium onion, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
2 medium carrots, diced
1/2 c celery
pepper - no salt
4 c unsalted chicken broth
2 c water

In a large saucepan, saute onion, garlic, and carrots over medium-high heat. Add peas. Cover with stock by a couple inches. Bring to a simmer and cook about 45 minutes until soup is thick and peas have almost disintegrated but not quite.(If you need to puree do it before adding ham). Add ham and heat 2 minutes more. Season with pepper.
