Recipe Ingredients for Split pea soup with ham

2 cups dried yellow split peas
2 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
8 cups cold water
2 cloves garlic
2 medium leek
2 medium carrots
3 stalks celery
2 tsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
2 tsp thyme
160 grams lean ham

Recipe Directions for Split pea soup with ham

  1. Rinse peas under cold water. In a large saucepan, add peas, crushed garlic and 6 cups of water. Heat to a boil and then reduce to med-low. For extra flavor, add a pork shoulder bone to the water. Skim the fat from the top of the water to keep fat content low.

  2. Let the mixture simmer for about 1.5 hours, or until peas are tender. Remove pork shoulder bone and get all the ham bits off of it and add it to the soup.

  3. Once peas are tender, chop vegetables (leeks, carrots, and celery) and add to the pot. Add the chicken stock and remaining water.

  4. Stir and cook for about 5 minutes. Add lemon juice and spices/herbs. Add ham and simmer for another 40 minutes or so.
