Recipe Ingredients for Split Pea Soup

1 pound dry split peas
2 tsp olive oil
1 cup onion, chopped
2 cups celery, chopped
2 medium carrots chopped
2 oz ham
1 tsp dried thyme
1/8 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
6 cups chicken broth, salt free

Recipe Directions for Split Pea Soup

  1. Drain peas, rinse under cold water and drain again; set aside. (Note: If you do not have time to soak the peas overnight, place them in a pot, cover with water and simmer for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and let them stand for 1 hour; drain and use as directed.)

  2. Heat oil in a large stockpot over medium-high heat. Add onion, celery, carrots and minced ham; sauté until soft, about 3 minutes. Add thyme, salt and pepper; stir to coat.

  3. Add peas and broth; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, partially cover and simmer until peas are tender, about 50 to 60 minutes. Serve hot. Yields about 1 cup per serving.
