Here’s a delicious soup that I make ahead and store in the freezer. It’s very low fat and high in fiber.
1 pound diced ham, chopped finely
1 raw ham bone, optional
2- 16 oz bags split peas
2- 32 oz containers chicken stock, unsalted
6 medium to small Yukon gold potatoes, diced into 1 inch cubes
1 large white onion, finely chopped
4 cups small sliced carrots
1 stalk celery, chopped
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
4 chicken bouillon cubes
4 bay leaves
2 glasses of water
Add thyme, oregano, parsley, basil, garlic, etc…to taste
In a large soup pot. Combine all ingredients.
Cook on slow boil for 30 minutes until split peas and carrots are tender.
This recipe makes a huge pot of low fat, very healthy soup. I put it into individual containers in the freezer. This eliminates stopping for takeout on the long days when there’s no time to cook.
Also, it’s a lot more healthy than the store-bought canned soups.
Hope you enjoy my split pea and ham soup.
May good fortune guide your path,
