Split pea soup is kind of like an ancient tradition in my family. I grew up on it and so folklore dictates, my family, too will grow up on it. Luckily, it’s one of my family’s favorite soups. Not only is it so incredibly easy to make, it’s also deeeee-licious and packed with tons of nutrition! Enjoy!
1 pound bag of dried Green Split Peas
1 large Spanish Onion
1 cup of chopped Ham
2 Bay Leaves
2 tablespoons of Ground Thyme
Salt & Pepper to taste
Chop the ham and onion. Throw all of your ingredients into a deep soup pot. Fill the pot to about 2 inches below the top. Bring it to a boil, then turn the burner down to medium heat. Simmer, stirring occasionally, for about an hour, or until the peas are cooked to a mushy consistency. For a heartier soup, throw in a few chopped potatoes or even serve over rice! Enjoy!
