Crock Pot Split Pea & Ham Soup

Submitted by: TASHTEGO

Introduction

Gotta love the crock pot! The ham adds a significant source of sodium - just be aware of it in your daily allowances.

Serving size is about 1.5 cups. Freezes well; just add a bit of hot water when you reheat it.

    2 cups yellow or green split peas (or a mix!)

    2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
    1 med cooking onion, diced

    2 med carrots, coarsely grated

Directions

Sauté the onion, celery and garlic in the oil and transfer to the bottom of the crock pot.

Add the remaining ingredients and cook on HIGH heat for 6-8 hours. (Or, HIGH for 4 hours, MED for 4 hours if your pot is programmable.)

Stir occasionally (if you're home!) and add a little hot water if needed to keep the preferred consistency.

Remove the ham bone!
