    Celiac.com 02/12/2021 - There are few soups more iconic than split pea and ham soup. Like a good clam chowder, a good split pea and ham soup is a wonder to enjoy.  In this slow cook version, the simple marriage of chicken broth, onion, ham, peas and herbs, happens as if by magic, while you're busy doing other things. It's a delicious tribute to the great split pea tradition.


    • 1 package (16 ounces) dried green split peas, rinsed
    • 2 cups cubed fully cooked ham
    • 1 large onion, chopped
    • 1 cup julienned or chopped carrots
    • 3 garlic cloves, minced
    • 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
    • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
    • 1 quart chicken broth
    • 2 cups water

    Combine all ingredients in a four or five quart slow cooker. 

    Cover and cook on low 8-10 hours or until peas are tender.

    This soup freezes up really well. 

    Store in freezer in proper containers.

    Thaw overnight before heating in a saucepan and serving hot.

    Celiac.com 03/16/2019 - It's spring, and that means it's time for leafy greens! Kale is on the menu in this rich, hearty and delicious Italian-style bean soup that's a perfect way to get more fiber into your diet. I use Hurst HamBeens 15 bean soup mix, but you can conceivably make this without it.  Regarding the spice packet, a note in the FAQ section of the Hurst website says: "All of our seasonings are completely gluten-free. All of our dry beans are naturally gluten free as well. We do occasionally package barley in our facility."

    Celiac.com 04/02/2020 - Spring has sprung, and that usually means recipes rich in verdant spring vegetables. However, the nights can still be a bit cold, and even though the days are longer, coming home to a nice bowl of rich, hearty ham and potato soup is a wonderful thing. This recipe is adapted from Chef John, over at FoodWishes blog, and also on YouTube.
