Ok, this is really easy and really good. It is great just to have around and you can really make it however you want, meaning you can put different stuff in it but I’m going to be putting ham in mine which is the traditional way. I usually make it vegetarian so you can just leave out the ham if you want to.
Every grocery store sells spilt peas in a 1 lb. bag on the same aisle as the dried beans.
1. Chop the onions
2. Chop the carrots
What You Will Need:
1 bag Split Peas ( 16oz)
½ Onion (Chopped)
4 Carrots (Chopped)
4 tsp. Garlic (Minced) (1 tsp. = 1 clove)
½ tsp. Thyme
½ tsp. Oregano
½ lb. Ham (or however much)
32 oz. Chicken Stock or Water
Salt & Pepper to taste
What You Do:
1. Saute the Onions and Carrots for about 10 min.
2. Add the Garlic, Thyme, Oregano, S&P and stir
3. Add the Stock or Water, bring to boil, then simmer for 1 hour
That’s it! Very easy and a real crowd pleaser.
