Alton Brown does it again. Best chef ever... I use yellow split peas, it's less weird for the kids!

Recipe Ingredients for Curried Split Pea Soup

2 tbsp butter, unsalted
1 onion, medium
2 cloves garlic
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 lb ham, chopped
1 lb split peas
5 cups chicken broth
1 tbsp curry powder

Recipe Directions for Curried Split Pea Soup

  1. Dice onions and garlic, relatively fine.

  2. Melt butter over medium heat, add onions and a pinch of salt. Sweat for about 2 minutes. Add garlic and continue sweating for another 2 minutes or so. Do not let the onions or garlic brown.

  3. Add ham, peas, curry powder, and chicken broth. Increase heat to high and bring to a boil.

  4. Once boiling, cover and reduce heat to low. Simmer until peas are tender, 45-55 minutes or so.

  5. If desired, use an immersion blender to puree soup. I do not do this as I like having the little peas.
