A deliciuos and traditional pea soup flavored with ham and sage.

Recipe Notes

Author's note: "I add the ham at the end because I find that it gets tough if I have it simmering the entire time. If you have a ham bone, throw that in at the beginning and let the flavors meld."

Ingredients

2 Tbsp. olive oil

1 cup diced onion

2 to 3 medium carrots, diced

3/4 cup diced celery


2 cups dried split peas, sorted and rinsed

5 cups water


8 oz. ham, diced

2 to 3 Tbsp. chopped fresh parsley

Savory Spice ingredients in this recipe

Directions

In a large pot, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add onion, carrots, celery, and salt and pepper. Go easy on the salt, remembering that you will be adding ham later. Cook until onions are translucent and vegetables begin to soften, about 5 min. Add in rinsed peas, water, and Poultry Seasoning. Stir to combine and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low (a simmer), and simmer partially covered for 30 to 40 min. until peas are softened. Add in ham and parsley, stir to combine, heat until warmed through.
