This delicious slow cooker split pea soup requires just 5 minutes of prep time and contains 21 grams of fiber and almost 28 grams of protein in just one bowl!
16 oz dried split peas (about 2 cups)
1 1/2 lb ham bone
3 carrots, diced
1 yellow onion, diced
1 shallot, diced
2 stalks celery, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp dried thyme
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
1 bay leaf
6 cups low sodium chicken stock
In the bowl of a slow cooker, combine the split peas, carrots, yellow onion, shallot, celery, garlic, thyme, pepper, bay leaf, and chicken stock. Mix well.
Add the ham bone on top and nestle into the contents of the slow cooker.
Cover and cook on Low for 5-6 hours, or until ham is tender and easily pulls off the bone.
Remove the ham and shred into bite-size pieces using two forks, then return the ham meat to the slow cooker, and discard the bone.
Remove the bay leaf and serve.
