Split Pea Soup
1 bag of green split peas, rinsed and sorted
1 cup chopped onions
1 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped green peppers
1 cup sliced carrots
1 cup diced potatoes
1 cup leftover brown rice or barley (optional)
1 cup diced turkey ham (like Jennie-O)
Seasonings-according to taste- thyme, rosemary, red pepper, sage, etc
Bring split peas to a boil in about 3 1/2 quarts of water (and/or broth).
Boil for 10 mins and add remaining ingredients. Simmer until veggies are soft!
(TIP: I often will do this early in the day, and cover the pot, turn off the heat and it will be done by lunch. Serve with dinner rolls or cornbread muffins.)
