This past grocery shopping trip, I decided to pick up a few new pantry items to make some new recipes and stock our freezer. Split Pea Soup is one of my Make-Ahead Meal Planning recipes. It’s delicious, easy to make and great on the food budget.

 Split Pea Soup


1 Tablespoon extra-virgin oilve oil

1 medium onion, diced

1 garlic clove, pressed

1 bag (2 cups) split peas, rinsed, drained and sorted

1 Tablespoon Spanish paprika, plus a pinch

1/4 teaspoon pepper

5 cups water 

1 Ham hock

Salt to taste (if needed, I omitted)



In a medium stock pot, saute onion and garlic until onion is translucent. Add split peas, paprika, pepper, water and ham hock. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to a simmer. Simmer for 20-25 minutes.  Remove ham hock and set aside. Using a hand blender, puree soup until it becomes a creamy consistency. Ladel into serving bowls. Garish with a pinch of paprika.

Recipe Note: Carrots and celery would make a great addition to this soup.
