Curried Split Pea and Ham Soup – Recipe!

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Chilly days yield to warm bowls of Curried Split Pea and Ham Soup.  It’s a touch different than traditional split pea soup because the curry makes the flavors pop with cozy surprises.

I used an Instant Pot to prepare this recipe because it’s speeds up the process, however you can use a slow-cooker and go that route, if time is not an issue.  The combination of split peas and ham are so classic — a dish that most of us have enjoyed over the years.

Split peas are very economical as well and one bag makes a large pot of soup with extras to eat for lunch or dinner the next day.  I used a ham bone from a previous meal, but a smoked ham hock or turkey leg would do the trick nicely.  The meat shreds off the bone delicately aftter cooking and can be added back into the soup before serving.
