Split Pea Soup With Ham- 21 Day Fix Approved


Split Pea Soup With Ham

There is just something so comforting as knowing you have something yummy cooking in the crock pot.  Usually as stew or soup for me.  Split Pea and Ham or Bean and Bacon are two that I love to have on days like this with a crusty piece of bread and butter.   This can be served on the 21 Day Fix Meal Plan as well.   If you are a soup lover, you must also try this Broccoli Cheddar Soup- 21 Day Fix Approved!!!

Crock Pot Split Pea Soup- 21 Day Fix Approved

Ingredients
1lb  ham cubed in to 1" chunks (trim off the fatty parts)
1 1/2 lbs of dried split peas
3 chopped carrots
1 large chopped onion
3 minced garlic cloves
1 teaspoon cracked pepper
2 teaspoons Himalayan salt
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 tablespoon olive oil
Directions
Rinse, drain and pick over your peas. Add peas to crock pot, cover with 3″ warm water with a tsp of salt and turn crock pot on high. Add ham and cover. Saute carrots and onions in olive oil until lightly browned, add minced garlic and saute for one minute longer. Toss sauteed goodness over ham and pea mixture. Add salt, pepper and thyme. Stir and replace lid. Option to add 1 bay leaf. 
Set it on high and forget it. Come back 6 hours later, remove the bay leaf if used and serve yourself a bowl of total comfort and yummy-ness! Serve with some crusty bread and a little butter. Enjoy.
If you want to have this on your 21 Day Fix Meal Plan 1 generous cup would be 1 Red, 1 Yellow and 1/2 Green and 1 tsp.  (Peas are a legume so they are counted as a yellow).
