Whenever I make a ham, I always save the ham bone for this delicious pressure cooker Split Pea Soup with Ham recipe.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb dry green split peas
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 2 large carrots (peeled and diced)
  • 1 medium onion (diced)
  • 1/4 cup diced celery
  • 2 cloves garlic (minced)
  • leftover ham bone
  • 6 cups water
  • 1 tbsp Better Than Bouillon or 1 cube*
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 4 ounces leftover ham (diced)
  • chopped chives for garnish

Instructions

  • Rinse peas under cold water.
  • In a pressure cooker, add oil, onions, carrots, celery and garlic and saute 4-5 minutes. Add ham bone, peas, water, chicken bouillon and bay leaf. Cover and cook high pressure for 15 minutes. Let the pressure release naturally then open, remove the bone and bay leaf and stir, the soup will thicken as it stands.
  • Saute the ham on a hot skillet if desired and use for garnish on the soup with chives.
  • To make without a pressure cooker, add 2 more cups water and simmer covered on low for 2 hours.
