Bitter Cold in PA!

It’s beyond cold outside and all I can think about is being warm.  My mindset is to make and eat anything that is hot.  In the mornings I’m making Bob’s Mighty tasty Gluten-Free Hot Cereal (and it gives a nice fiber punch!) with tea, and you bet I’m eating soup or stews for lunch and dinner.  Last night after a great run I made a hearty split pea soup, which warmed me up nicely after my body started to cool down from the run.

Split Pea Soup - Dinner!

Split Pea Soup – Dinner!

I decided to make this since I had leftover ham steaks that were on sale.  This dish won’t be ready in an instant as the split peas require some cooking time.

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb green split peas (rinsed)
  • 2 T oil
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 2 onions diced
  • 3 stalks celery diced
  • 3 large carrots diced
  • 2 ham steaks (or a ham bone if you have one)
  • 8 cups water (you may need more depending on the amount of veggies you include)
  • 1 Herb-ox gluten free chicken bouillon cube (optional)
  • Pepper to taste

Directions:

  1. In large pot heat oil and saute garlic and onions until translucent
  2. Add in remaining ingredients and bring to a boil
  3. Once boiling reduce heat, cover and simmer stirring occasionally
  4. Cook for about 2 hours
