Split Pea Soup

My Mom's Split Pea Soup!
Hmmmmmn....Comfort Food!!!!


Welcome to my blog and welcome back if you are a returning visitor!  I'd LOVE if you would stay awhile and click on 'follow' to become a follower!

Remember:  Recipes Posted Every Week Day....so hopefully we will see you tomorrow!

So this is my MOM's Split Pea Soup and I can still remember the day I actually TRIED the soup!  You see...when you are a kid, GREEN soup doesn't sound very good!  In fact, it took a little convincing with my own kids.  My 5 year old son now believes this is special 'leprechaun soup'!  But he TRIED it and he LIKED IT!  Whoa!  He LIKED IT!

Nutritional Info Per Serving:  About 200 calories and VERY filling!
Preparation Time: About 10 minutes
Cook Time:  About 90 minutes
Number of Servings: 20 (1/2 cup servings)
1 - 36 oz bag of split peas
3 - 36 oz containers of chicken stock
1/2 pound of lean ham, diced
1 -  medium onion, chopped small
2  - carrots, chopped small
2 - tablespoons herb blend


Bring 2 of your 36 oz container of chicken stock to a low boil over high heat.  Reduce heat to low (simmer) and add your bag of split peas.

Add your chopped onions.....

And....your chopped carrots.


Mix together with your herb blend.

Once it all starts to break down...you add more chicken stock as needed, your ham and salt & pepper to taste!

And you......ARE.....DONE!  Nummy, healthy...comfort food for the whole  family with VERY little effort!  Just close your eyes....then it won't look GREEN! :)

THANK YOU ONCE AGAIN for stopping by.  I looooove visitors and Truly enjoy hearing HOW your cooking adventures turned out!  Thanks so much!

Goodnight and see you tomorrow!  Be sure to let me know how YOURS turned out!
