Ingredients

  • 2-1/2 cups dried split peas
  • 8 cups water
  • 1 ham bone
  • 1/2 cup chopped shallots
  • 1/2 cup chopped carrots
  • Fresh celery leaves

  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 tsp. salt (I use sea salt)
  • 1/2 tsp. granulated garlic
  • 1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 1 (8 oz.) package cream cheese (low fat is ok)

Directions

Place split peas, water, ham bone, shallots, carrots, celery leaves, bay leaf, salt, garlic, and pepper into a large pot. Heat to almost boiling. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for about 1-1/2 hours or until the peas are tender. Remove the ham bone and the bay leaf. Dice the meat from the ham bone and set aside. Cut the cream cheese into cubes. Process cream cheese with the soup in small batches in a blender or food processor. Add ham, and reheat. Taste, and adjust seasonings as necessary.
