Midweek Slow Cooked Pea and Ham Soup

| | Comments (2)

This was a very simple thing to do for a midweek meal.  And there were yellow split peas that had been in the pantry for ages and I wanted to use them up.

So a couple of packs of bacon bones, a diced onion, a couple of bay leaves, some yellow split peas and some pepper.

Chuck it all in the slow cooker and cover with water.  Slow cook on low all day.

Whoops, bit of air exposure after a day of the split peas absorbing the water.

Pull all the bones out (*carefully* so as not to lost bits of vertebra in the soup), let them cool slightly, then pull off all the meat.

Chuck it all back in and stir til thick.

I thought the soup needed a little something extra, so made up these parmesan croutons.  Just some chopped bread sprayed with a little oil, some grated parmesan on top, and bake at 180C for 10 minutes.

They worked well together and the sweetie went back for seconds of everything :)
