Split Pea Soup in the Electric Pressure Cooker


Our Easter Dinner usually includes Ham.
Ham, usually means leftovers.
Leftover Ham, usually means soup.

I decided to use this year's leftover Ham bone in a Split Pea Soup Recipe.

For some reason I was under the impression that I couldn't make split pea soup in the Pressure Cooker. After some research, I found out I was wrong. I am not sure where I got that idea from, but glad that I discovered it wasn't true!







Split Pea Soup

4 cups Split Peas
8 cups water

1 chopped Onion
3 diced Carrots
2 stalks diced Celery

Sort and rinse Split Peas.
Place in Pressure Cooker. Add ham bone, water, onion, carrots, and celery.
Place lid on Pressure Cooker. (follow directions on your Pressure Cooker)
Set to high for 10 minutes.
When timer goes off let the pressure go down naturally.


Add salt to taste after it has been cooked.


Done!~
So fast and Easy. 




I didn't have fresh onion and celery. I used freeze dried celery and dried minced onion. Still tasted great.
I used yellow split peas.


This is a super recipe and a great way to use up that leftover ham!
