Gluten-Free Split Pea Soup with Carrots, Celery and Onion – Even Ham, Too – in the Crockpot

I really love gluten-free split pea soup in my diet … It’s high-fiber, has no refined sugar and is highly nutritious.  And, my husband likes it even more than I do.  He thinks that it tastes great and frequently comes back for seconds.

Actually, this is one of my favorite gluten-free soup recipes.  It takes only a minute or two to remove the foreign matter from the bag of split peas. It cooks almost on auto pilot.

It makes 6 to 8 servings with a very small time investment.

 

Gluten-Free Split Pea Soup with Carrots, Celery and Onion – Even Ham, Too – in the Crockpot

Ingredients

2 Cups Split Peas, dried (check the label to be sure they were not processed in a facility that also handles wheat, barley or rye)

1 1/2 Quarts Water

4 Cups Chicken Stock, or Beef or Vegetable (make your own, or buy a brand that you’re sure is gluten-free – many are not)

1 Medium Carrot, chopped

1/2 Cup Celery, sliced thin

1/2 Cup Onion, chopped

1 Teaspoon Chopped Parsley, or Dried

1/8 Teaspoon Pepper

1 Small Bay Leaf

1 Cup Cooked Ham, cubed, optional (check the label to make sure this is gluten-free)

 

Directions:

Pick over the peas to remove any foreign matter (like rocks, kidney beans, corn kernels, etc.)

Rinse in a colander or strainer.

Put all ingredients in the crockpot.

Cook on High for 4-5 hours, or Low for 6-8 hours.

If you’re adding cooked ham, put it in about 20-30 minutes before serving.

If desired, thin with milk or water.  Add salt or pepper to taste.

Makes about 6-8 servings.

    Most of my family likes split pea soup. My husband especially does. I have always cooked it in a pressure cooker to save time, but the crock pot is a great idea too. Thanks for sharing it with us, Pat.
