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

  • 1 qt. chicken broth, organic, free-range
  • 12 oz. split peas, dry, organic
  • 1 sml. onion, any type, organic
  • 2 carrot, fresh, organic
  • 1 stlk. celery stalk, fresh, organic
  • 1/2 med. bell pepper, red, fresh, organic
  • 2 clove garlic, fresh, organic
  • 1 tbs. thyme, fresh, organic
  • 1 bay leaf, organic
  • 1 sml. ham, nitrate-free, nitrite-free, grass-fed
  • sea salt, unrefined, & fresh ground pepper, organic to taste

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.
