This recipe for Split Pea & Ham soup makes a hearty and vibrant soup that’s the perfect comforting cold weather soup.
This is the best soup I have made in a really long time! I have been craving split pea soup for a while, but had trouble finding green split peas here in the UK. When I finally found some, I had to come up with a recipe! The ham hocks add a lot of flavor. If you can’t get a hold of them, you can replace the hocks by sauteing some chopped bacon in the bottom of the pan before sauteing the onion or just using left over baked ham. I made ham for Christmas and froze the liquid I boiled the ham in before baking. It added a lot of flavor.
