Split Pea And Greens Soup

Monday, December 16, 2013

Hello Sparkfamily! How is everyone doing today? It is Monday and it is almost Christmas! Can you believe that!! Well, here is another family favorite that I would like to share with all of you so I hope that you enjoy this and I hope that all of you have a healthy day! Hug, Rose:)


1 pound green split peas (about 2 1/4 cups), rinsed and drained
1 large sweet onion, cut into 1/4-inch dice
3 large carrots, cut into 1/4-inch dice
4 large ribs celery, cut into 1/4-inch dice
5 fresh thyme sprigs
1 4 oz. thick-cut lower-sodium ham steak, diced (about 1 cup)
Salt and pepper
1 large bunch kale, stems and ribs discarded
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar


1. In a slow cooker, combine split peas, onion, carrots, celery, thyme, ham, 7 cups water, 1 tsp. salt and 1/2 tsp. pepper. Cover and cook on low until peas are tender, 5 to 5 1/2 hours.

2. Working in batches, finely chop kale in a food processor (you should have about 5 cups). Uncover soup; remove and discard thyme sprigs. Stir in vinegar, then kale. Taste and season with more vinegar, salt and pepper, if desired. Enjoy!

Have a healthy day and please remember to drink your water! Hugs, Rose:)

    A good hearty soup - but living in the southern hemisphere I am in the middle of a very hot siummer - and soup really doesn't figure highly in our menu!!
