Ingredients

  • 16 oz split peas dry
  • 7 cups vegetable broth or water, more if you want to thin it out
  • 2 carrots diced
  • 2 stalks celery diced
  • 1/3 onion diced
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2-3 c ham bite size-diced, or 1 ham hock

Instructions

  • Add dried peas and broth to slow cooker. 
  • Cut veggies into med. sized sliced pieces and add to crockpot. Dice onion and add that as well as your salt too. (can salt at the end if you'd rather)
  • Put your ham hock in the middle (if you're using one), or sprinkle your diced ham pcs. into your pot.
  • Cover and let cook on low for about 8 hrs or until your peas are as soft as you'd like them. If using ham hock remove before eating and cut off meat, return to pot and stir into soup.
  • Add more broth to thin out if desired - will thicken as it sits as well as become thicker the next day if you have leftovers
