READY IN: 1hr 40mins
Recipe by dicentra

This is adapted from my 365 One Dish Meals cookbook. I bet it could be adapted for the crock-pot.

Great soup loved especially by my 15 year old daughter - easy to do but mine needed extra water added along the way - I always use split green peas so this was a change to use yellow - makes the colour different but taste really remains unaltered as does texture - thanks dicentra .

  3. Reduce heat to low. Simmer, covered for 1 hour.
  4. Add carrots, celery, parsley, salt and pepper. Cook, covered, over medium-low heat, until peas are tender, about 30 minutes.
  5. Discard ham bone if there is one. Serve hot.
