Split Pea Soup

If you have leftover holiday ham, try making this easy Split Pea Soup.  You can make it in a Slow Cooker or on your stove top.

Peas are legumes, and provide an excellent source of protein. This plant based protein is a complete protein containing all nine essential amino acids.  Diets rich in legumes may help reduce cholesterol, hypertension and the risk of pre-diabetes.

16 oz package of dried green split peas, rinsed
1 cup of chopped carrots
1 cup of chopped celery
1 large onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minces
1/2 tsp. of thyme and rosemary
Salt & pepper
1-2 cups of cooked ham
32 ounces of broth (chicken, vegetable or bone broth)
2 cups of water

Combine all ingredients in a slow cooker.  Cook on low for 8-10 hours or until peas are tender.  You can garnish with sour cream, fresh parsley or sprinkle crumbed bacon on top.  Enjoy!
