Split Pea Soup with Ham

Ingredients

  • 1 lb. dried split peas, rinsed and sorted
  • 2 quarts chicken broth or 8 c. water + 8 tsp. chicken bouillon
  • 1 lb. ham diced into small pieces (perfect for left over ham!)
  • 2 medium carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 4-5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp. Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp. marjoram
  • 1/2 tsp. smoked paprika
  • pinch of thyme
  • 1 bay leaf

Directions

Place all the ingredients in a slow cooker and cook on low for 6-8 hours or on high for 4 hours. You can also cook it on high until it starts to boil and then turn the setting on low until you’re ready to serve the soup. Top with garlic croutons.
