Split Pea And Ham Soup Kitchen Tips:
- Classic French-Canadian split pea and ham soup is comfort in a bowl, perfect for cold nights. Freeze leftovers for a simple, satisfying meal in a pinch. It’s nutritious and budget-friendly, and prep takes only a few minutes.
- The split peas continue to break down as the soup cools and then is reheated. If you prefer a thicker soup, increase cooking time to 9 or 10 hours.
- Freeze reserved ham and use in a quick meal later on. It’s great in a ham and cheese frittata or omelette, a quick pasta, minestrone soup or stir-fried rice.
