Ingredients

  • 2 cups yellow split peas, rinsed
  • 1 (approx 750g) ham hock
  • 3 medium carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 3 celery stalks, chopped
  • 1 brown onion, finely chopped
  • 8 cups water
  • 3 tsp vegetable stock powder

Instructions

  • Place the rinsed yellow split peas into the base of the slow cooker. 
  • Add the ham hock, chopped carrots, celery and brown onion. 
  • Mix the vegetable stock powder into the water and pour over the top. 
  • Allow to cook for 8 hours on low or 6 hours on high. 
  • Remove the ham hock, but off the fat and discard (along with the bone). Chop the meat roughly and place back into the slow cooker (see notes). 

Notes

If you'd like a smoother soup, use a stick blender to puree it before adding the chopped meat back in.
