MOCK SPLIT PEA SOUP WITH HAM


I used to love split pea soup with ham.  One of the things I truly miss on a cold day.  This soup uses green beans and cauliflower pureed and slow cooked with a ham bone and it sure hit the spot.  In my opinion, it is every bit as good as split pea soup.  The flavors blended together are wonderful.


It does the trick for me!  I hope it does for you, if you are a lover of split pea soup with ham.  It's been a long time since I've had actual split pea soup, but I think this tastes like the real thing that I remember.  I don't think my family knew that it wasn't until I told them.

1 pound  frozen cauliflower

1 large  ham bone
1 teaspoon  onion powder
   pepper -- to taste
2 bay leaves
1/2 teaspoon  thyme
1 cup  ham -- cut up from off the ham bone*

In steamer, or microwave, steam the cauliflower until tender, about 10 minutes.  Drain any water and place in food processor.  

Empty green beans into food processor with cauliflower and process until a smooth puree.

In crock-pot, add chicken stock, pureed vegetables, ham bone, onion powder, pepper, bay leaves, and thyme.  Mix together, cover, and cook on high for 4 hours. Remove bay leaves.

Remove ham bone, cut off all the ham you can and add the ham pieces back into the soup.  Stir together and serve.

NOTES : This is salty as is with the ham so I found it did not need any additional salt.  If you want to add salt taste first!

*Estimated to get about 1 cup of ham from ham bone.
