My favorite soup ever is Split Pea! It's delicious and good for you! For less than $5.00 I created a dish that gave me about 2 lunches and I have ham and peas left over!
|1/2 package Split Peas-Albertsons $1.30 (I think) complete protein when added with carbohydrates, and high in vitamin c, folate, potassium, and fiber|
|32 Oz Chicken Broth- Pacific Natural Foods low sodium chicken broth FREE, adds flavor and more protein|
|1/2 Ham Steak- Fresh and Easy $3.32. Mmm protein||, flavor|
Soak half the package of peas in water over night to soften the peas.
Cube half of the ham steak. Keep the bone.
Pour 32 oz of chicken broth in a pot.
Add ham bone, ham, and peas into pot.
Boil and cook until the peas have soften up into a thick creamy consistency.
Add sea salt, pepper, garlic powder, and paprika to taste.
My left over ham will be used for an omelet tomorrow. Yum!
