I have easily adapted my split pea soup recipe and want to share with you how easy it is to do.
We choose not to eat pork that frequently so I have substituted turkey ham. I wish I could find organic turkey ham, but have not yet.
You can see that by soaking the peas overnight and using homemade stock you have easily adapted your Split Pea Soup recipe to a more nourishing soup!
Nourishing Split Pea Soup
The night before, soak 3 cups split peas in water to cover.
The next day:
Saute in Olive Oil until tender:
2 cups chopped onion
4 cloves chopped garlic
salt and pepper
3 cups organic split peas, green or yellow (that have been soaked overnight)
3-4 chopped, organic carrots
2-3 organic potatoes, cubed
2 cups cubed turkey ham, sadly not organic, nor grassfed:(
7 cups Homemade Chicken Stock
Stir to mix and bring to simmer, cover. Simmer gently until peas are tender. I have had them tender in about an hour to sometimes 2 1/2 hours.
