INSTANT POT SPLIT PEA SOUP

Look, split pea soup is pretty ugly. I can’t even pretend otherwise. But it tastes really good! It’s a thick and rich soup that is a classic dish for a reason. We are giving it more flavor by adding some garlic and using a dash of liquid smoke. When you combine that with the flavors of the chopped ham and the sliced leeks, I guarantee this will be your new favorite soup recipe!

TIPS FOR MAKING THIS SPLIT PEA SOUP RECIPE:

  • If you can’t find leeks, just use about 1/4 cup of diced sweet onion.
  • This recipe is amazing for leftover ham. After Christmas or Easter when you have more ham than you know what to do with, remember this recipe!
  • Dried green split peas can generally be found where the dried beans are in your grocery store.
