Hearty soup and easy to prepare - in the crockpot! Leftovers can be stored for an easy meal later!

Ingredients

    1 sml. onion

    2 carrot

    1 stlk. celery stalk, fresh, organic

    1/2 med. red bell pepper

    2 clove garlic

    1 tbsp. fresh thyme

    1 bay leaf

    1 sml. ham

    sea salt & black pepper to taste

    1 qt. chicken broth

    12 oz. split peas

Directions

Add chicken broth to crockpot. Add split peas, onion, carrots, celery, bell pepper, garlic, thyme, bay leaf, and ham hock; season with Sea Salt and ground black pepper.

Cover and cook on high until split peas are creamy, about 6 hours, stirring occasionally. I cook on low, about 8 hours.

Remove ham hock from pot. Discard skin and bones, dice meat. Discard bay leaf. Lightly mash peas with the back of a large wooden spoon. Return ham to soup and season to taste with additional Sea Salt and black pepper.

*The number of protein servings will depend on the size of the ham hock and how much ham is used. It will typically be between 1/2 and 1 protein serving.
