If you’d love to have creamy split pea soup on the dinner in 30 minutes, give this a try.  My son Cory passed along this time saving idea  Cooking it in the pressure cooker that he gave me for Mother’s Day gave us delicious soup which was higher in vitamins and nutrients.  AND, the BEST PART is that there was NO BLENDING of the soup!  The pressure cooker broke the peas down perfectly.  My recipe is below.  Please feel free to use it or use your own.  Just give it a try in your pressure cooker.


1 large pork hock or use leftover ham

½ cup Diced Celery

3 large carrots

1 large chopped Onion

1 lb dried split peas

3 cans Chick broth

½ tsp salt

½ tsp pepper

¼ tsp thyme

1/8 tsp marjoram

1 potato, trimmed and cubed

2 cloves garlic

Crushed red pepper, dash

NOTE:  If you’re using a pork hock instead of ham, taste it before adding any salt.  They can be very salty.

I used my normal recipe, just browned the pork hock, celery, onions, and carrots quickly (right in the pressure cooker).  Then we added the rinsed peas, chicken broth, pepper, thyme, marjoram, potato, garlic and crushed red pepper.

I served it with a scrumptious onion cheese yeast bread which I’ll share in another post.
