Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 7 hours
Total Time 7 hours 15 minutes


  • 1 large onion
  • 4-5 sticks of celery
  • 1 pack of green split peas (500g)
  • 600g potatoes
  • 1 Large ham hock (1.1-1.3kg)
  • 1 litre chicken stock (I use salt reduced as the ham is already quite salty)
  • 2.5 litres water
  • Bay leaf


  • Finely chop onion and celery.
  • Dice potatoes.
  • Rinse split peas.
  • Add all ingredients to slow cooker.
  • Cook for low 6 hours.
  • Remove bay leaf and ham hock, and shred meat (taking the rind off first).
  • Using a hand held blender, half blend the soup, then return the shredded meat to the slow cooker.
  • Cook for a further 1 hour.
  • NOTE: you will need a big slow cooker for this recipe. Mine is 6.5litres, and the soup just fits.

  1. This was really easy to make. I soaked the split peas overnight and didn’t put in the bay leaf. It was fantastic!
