This soup is great for a cold winter afternoon! This recipe is quick and easy. It’s serves one or two and goes great with crusty bread or a grilled cheese sandwich. (use organic ingredients)

Ingredients:

1\2 cup dry split peas, I used ones that didn’t need to soak

1 carrot, washed, peeled, and diced 1 celery stalk, washed and diced

1/2 small onion, diced

2 small garlic cloves, minced

1 1/2 – 2 cups of water

1/2 cup leftover baked ham, diced Black pepper, to taste

Directions: Place everything in a saucepan and bring to a boil.

Simmer for 30-60 minutes, mash the peas a bit at the end to make the soup thicker. Serve with 1/2 of a grilled cheese or cold cheese sandwich or crusty french bread and butter. The recipe is easily doubled for larger quantities. If you omit the ham you will need to add sea salt. Enjoy!
