Easy "Peasy" Split Pea Soup

Lori Ann


This is my version of split pea soup. I discovered that the Sazon from Goya that is sold in packets is a wonderful flavor enhancer for this soup. If you can't get it just use seasoned salt which is what I used to use. This soup takes a while to thicken but worth the wait.

How to Make Easy "Peasy" Split Pea Soup


  1. Put onion, celery with tops (make sure they're not wilted) and carrot in a food processor and chop until fine.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large dutch oven or pot and add the chopped onion-celery-carrot mixture and garlic powder. Cook on low for about 5 minutes.
  3. Add all remaining ingredients (if using chopped ham omit the jamon seasoning) and bring to a boil.) Lower heat, cover and then simmer for about 1 1/2 hours stirring often until peas are cooked through and soup is thickened. Taste and add salt and pepper as needed.
  4. Serve with grilled swiss and ham on marbled rye bread. Yummy! Enjoy
