    Green split peas. Salt, pepper, bay leaves, ham bone with a fee hunks still in it. Water. Slow boil (slow cooker better).

    Default Pea and Ham Soup

    I do the same as @VicPark but also fry some onions, garlic and add them to the pot. I also add carrots, celery and potatoes. The potatoes really thicken it up. Pea and ham soup is always so much better the next day. I made some the other day and it was so yummy!

    I don't have a full recipe but when my mum makes it (Dutch pea and ham soup) I know she soaks her green split peas overnight in a bowl of water. She also adds finely diced potato, carrot and onion.

    Green or yellow split peas soaked if possible.
    In a pot add ham bone, peas, water, cubed carrots, chopped onion and chopped celery. Cook until it's all soft and yummy - take bone out and take meat off the bone and add meat back into the soup. Season with pepper - doesn't usually need salt due to the ham.
    Yum!!

    I was wondering if you soak the peas or not! Also was thinking about using roasted garlic?

    I wouldn't put garlic in it - you could try but I like it without it!

    Yes that is a great point about salt! Cool the soup and taste it before adding ANY salt as it's really easy to make it too salty

    I normally rinse the split peas, and then cook in the slow cooker for 8hrs on low. I've never roasted the garlic, just added one or two cloves, depending on taste. This is the way my Mum and Nan taught me. I think most people have different versions, it all comes down to your taste. Tasting before adding extra salt is also a great idea too.

    Similar to others above:

    1 Ham hock
    1 bag of split peas (rinsed)
    1 onion diced
    2 cloves of garlic (smashed)
    1 carrot diced
    1 potato diced
    1 chicken stock cube
    1-2 bay leaves
    Water

    Slow cook low 8 hours, remove meat and bay leaf, blend, put meat back in and it's done. 😀
