Serving: 6
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 6 hours
Total Time 6 hours 10 minutes


  • 2 Onions, diced
  • 2 carrots, diced
  • 2 large potatoes, diced
  • 2 cups dry split peas, rinsed and drained
  • 1-2 ham hocks
  • 1/2 tsp marjoram
  • 2 bay leaves (remove before blending)
  • Black pepper
  • 2 cups frozen peas
  • Optional
  • Parsley and lemon juice to serve.


  • Place all ingredients except frozen peas and optional extras into slow cooker, add approximately 6-8 cups of water, till just about covering hocks (see photo). I also added 1 vegetable stock cube, but it certainly did not need this, also do not add salt until after cooking as per taste, as hocks provide enough salt for this.
  • Cook either on low for 6-8 hours, or high for 4-6 hours, 30 mins before serving, remove hocks and add in frozen peas. When hocks are cool enough, cut/break up into small pieces and discard bones. With a hand blender, blend soup until smooth. Add meat back to dish, add optional extras and serve with a nice crusty bread 🙂
  • All ingredients in this recipe are give or take- if you don't have something leave it out and substitute with more of anything else- no potatoes, add extra cup of split peas etc.
