- 16 oz bag of dried split peas
- 1 1/2 lb ham bone (optional but adds some great gut healing properties)
- 3 carrots, diced
- 1 yellow onion, diced
- 2 stalks celery, diced
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tsp dried thyme
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
- 1 bay leaf
- 6 cups low sodium chicken or vegetable stock
In a crock pot, combine all ingredients except ham bone and mix together well.
Add the ham bone and push into the center of the mixture.
Cover and cook on LOW for 5-6 hours, or until ham is tender and comes away from the bone with ease.
Remove the ham and shred, then return the ham meat to the crockpot and combine.
Remove the bay leaf and serve hot!
