Slow Cooker Split Pea Soup

Ingredients

Dried split peas, 16 ounces

6-8 cups chicken stock or broth (enough to cover ham hocks) (click here to learn how to make your own chicken stock)

2 smoked ham hocks (not smoked would also work, but smoked is so much better)

1/2 cup finely chopped onion

1 tablespoon minced garlic (I use jarred)

1 cup chopped carrot

optional garnish: diced ham

Directions

Add ingredients to slow cooker and cook on high 4-6 hours or low for 8-10 hours.

Remove ham hocks and mash soup with a fork or blend with an immersion blender, depending on your consistency preference. (I like mine smoooooth).

Optional step: brown diced ham in a skillet and serve on soup.
