Introduction

This recipe has been adapted from one found on Gina's Weight Watcher's Recipes site. (http://www.skinnytaste.com/2008/03/split-
peas-soup-with-ham-2-points.html) I added more carrots, plus celery and swapped out the ham hock for a third pound of crisped bacon. My changes added 1/2 point to her recipe.

Ingredients

    1 bag of dried split peas
    1 chopped onion
    1 garlic clove or more if you like more garlic, use 2-3 cloves of garlic
    8 cups fat-free chicken stock
    2 tsp of olive oil
    4 carrots - chopped
    2 stalks celery, chopped
    Salt and Pepper, to taste
    1/3 pound bacon, cooked and drained

Directions

Wash peas and drain them. In a large stock pot, saute onions, celery and garlic in about 2 tsp of oil, making sure not to burn the garlic.

Add peas, carrots, bacon and your chicken stock, then cover the pot and let it come to a boil. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Once it boils, reduce heat and simmer for about two hours (peas should be very soft by then). You may need to add a little more chicken stock if it becomes too thick. Divide among six bowls.

Serve with toast (extra points)
