This soup is a satisfying delicious meal very high in fiber. A perfect soup on a cold evening!
Servings 6 servings • Time 2 hours •

  • 1 bag of dried split peas
  • 1 chopped onion
  • 1 garlic clove or more if you like more garlic, use 2-3 cloves of garlic
  • 8 cups fat-free chicken stock
  • 2 tsp of olive oil
  • 2 carrots – chopped
  • Salt and Pepper, to taste
  • 1 Ham Hock

Wash peas and drain them. In a pot, saute onions and garlic in about 2 tsp of oil.

Add peas, carrots, ham hock and your chicken stock, then cover the pot and let it come to a boil.Add salt and pepper to taste.

Once it boils you can reduce heat and cook for about two hours (beans should be very soft by then). Make sure to check the water and consistency. You may need to add hot water if it becomes too thick.
