Split Pea Soup

Split Pea Soup is definitely far from one of my favorite things to eat. At least, it has been. Brent loves the stuff and he rarely ever gets it. I decided to take a stab at making it. I jazzed it up in my own way with rosemary hoping that I would like it and I did. Those little green things are starting to grown on me a little more. I still do not like a pile of peas on my plate, but they do taste great in several different dishes. I also love them nice and freshly picked. I will eat them rare, but plain old cooked peas… Yuck! I hope you take the time to try out my split pea recipe. Enjoy!


  • 1 pound bag split peas
  • 6-8 cups chicken broth
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 2-3 carrots chopped
  • 2 cups cubed ham
  • 2 small to medium sized potatoes cubed
  • 2 tablespoons rosemary
  • salt and pepper to taste

Add the split peas and chicken broth to a large pan and cook on medium high heat until it begins to boil. Turn the heat down to medium. Meanwhile, saute the onion for 2-3 minutes and then add the garlic for another minute. Add the onion, garlic, carrots, ham, potatoes, rosemary and salt and pepper to the split peas and chicken broth mixture. Continue to cook until the peas become soft and become almost pasty. Add more rosemary or salt and pepper if needed. Serve with you favorite side of bread and enjoy!
