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


1Finely chop onion and celery.

2Dice potatoes.

3Rinse split peas.

4Add all ingredients to slow cooker.

5Cook for low 6 hours.

6Remove bay leaf and ham hock, and shred meat (taking the rind off first).

7Using a hand held blender, half blend the soup, then return the shredded meat to the slow cooker.

8Cook for a further 1 hour.


10NOTE: you will need a big slow cooker for this recipe. Mine is 6.5litres, and the soup just fits.

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