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


  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 cup diced onion
  • 2 to 3 medium carrots, diced
  • 3/4 cup diced celery
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 2 cups dried split peas, sorted and rinsed
  • 5 cups water
  • 1 Tbsp. Sage & Savory Stuffing Seasoning
  • 8 oz. ham, diced
  • 2 to 3 Tbsp. chopped fresh parsley


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."


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 Sage & Savory. 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 though.

“I ordered some spices from your on-line store. The box was bursting with wonderful smells as I repackaged my new spices into bottles. The prices were far better than what I am used to paying at the grocery store. I will certainly be a return customer! Thank you so much, I am glad I found you.”

This has quickly become the go to split pea soup recipe at our house. It is delicious and fast! We think that the sage and savory stuffing seasoning really makes a big difference. Try it!
