Makes: 4 servings Total Time: 2 hr 30 min
Category: Soups/Chilis Sub Category: Soups & Stews

what you need
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 1 pound dried split peas
  • 1 pound ham bone
  • Enough water to cover
  • 1 pinch salt, to taste
  • 1 pinch pepper, to taste
make it
1. In a medium pot, sauté onions in oil. Add the split peas, ham bone, and enough water to cover ingredients; season with salt and pepper.

2. Cover and cook until there are no solid peas left, just a green liquid, about 2 hours. Stir periodically while cooking, adding more water as needed to keep the ham bone covered.

3. Once the soup is a green liquid, remove from heat. Remove the ham bone and pull or cut off any remaining ham pieces; discard the bone and return the ham to the soup and let stand so it will thicken. Once thickened, you may need to heat through to serve.
Try substituting shallots for the onion.

Use a cup or two of cubed ham steak instead of the ham bone, or even in addition to the ham bone.

Recipe is easily doubled, just allow to cook a bit longer, until the peas are completely absorbed.
