Curried Split Pea Soup

5 Apr

This is a thick and hearty healthy soup. All four of my boys will sit down and happily eat which just makes my life easier. It is gluten free and could be vegetarian if you like or it could be a great way to use up that extra ham.
2 Tbsp. olive oil
1 C. Chopped onion
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
1 Tbsp. minced onion
12 oz. dried green split peas, pick over and rinse
5 C. Chicken broth or vegetable broth GF
1 Tbsp. curry powder
1 C. Peeled and 1-inch chopped up carrots
1 C. Diced ham optional

Place the oil in bottom of 6 qt. sauce pan heat on medium. Add onion, salt pepper and garlic. Cook onions until translucent. Add broth, peas and curry. Add carrots and ham if you like. Bring to boil then reduce heat to low and cover pot. Simmer until peas are soft, 45 minutes. Use potato masher to smooth out soup but still keep it chunky. Just so satisfying!
