Do you like the Campbell’s Chunky Split Pea Soup with Ham? Here’s my copycat recipe for homemade thick & chunky pea soup.

Ingredients:

  • 1 package dried split peas
  • 8 c. water
  • 2 – 3 potatoes
  • 1 – 2 onions
  • 2 carrots
  • 2 c. cooked, chopped ham
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 2 celery stalks
  • 5 tsp chicken stock or vegetable broth
  • fresh parsley
  • bay leaf
  • 1 tsp rubbed sage
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp basil
  • 1/2 tsp salt (optional)

Instructions:

  • Prep your ingredients, chop the potatoes, slice the carrots & celery, dice the onion & chop the parsley
  • Combine all ingredients in a pot & bring it to a boil. Reduce heat, cover & simmer 1 hr + 15 minutes.
  • (Optional) Using a hand mixer, scoop out 2-3 ladles of soup and blend in a blending cup, then add it back to the soup & simmer for 15 more minutes.

Tips:

Be sure to simmer on really low & stir it every 15 minutes or so, so it doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan & burn.

I love soup season. So warm & comforting and always great with homemade grilled cheese.

Alterations:

Make it vegetarian or vegan by omitting the ham, and using vegetable broth instead. You can also try different seasonings such as marjoram and cumin, or garnish with shredded carrots and sliced green onions.
