Split Pea and Ham Soup (Gluten-Free)


  • 4 tbsp. butter
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 carrot, diced 
  • 1 ham steak, cut into cubes
  • 1 (20 oz.) package split peas
  • 12 cups water
  • 1 ham bone
  • 1 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper

Add butter to a large pot over medium heat. Add onions, carrots and ham steak and cook for 3-4 minutes or until onions are translucent.

Add split peas, water and ham bone to the pot. Raise heat. Cover and heat to boiling. Boil rapidly for 30 minutes. 

Season with salt and pepper. Uncover and reduced heat to medium. Simmer for an additional 30 minutes. Stir occasionally. The longer you cook it, the thicker it will get.

Serve as-is or use an immersion blender to make smooth.
