Split Pea Soup with Ham - 2 WW pts

This soup is a satisfying delicious meal very high in fiber. With all that ham, you would never believe it is only 2 weight watchers points!

Gina's Weight Watcher Recipes
Servings 6 servings • Time 2 hours • Points: 2 ww points

* 1 bag of dried split peas
* 1 chopped onion
* 1 garlic clove or more if you like more garlic, use 2-3 cloves of garlic
* 3 quarts fat-free chicken stock
* 2 tbsp of olive oil
* 2 carrots - chopped
* Salt and Pepper, to taste
* 1 Ham Hock

Wash peas and drain them. In a pot, saute onions and garlic in about 2 tbsp of oil.

Add peas, ham hock and your chicken stock, then cover the pot and let it come to a boil. Add your salt and pepper.

Once it boils you can reduce heat and cook for about two hours (beans should be very soft by then). Make sure to check the water and consistency. You may need to add hot water if it becomes too thick.

Serve with 1/2 slice of ww toasted bread.

I just noticed you copied my recipe and pasted verbatim onto your site. This is considered unethical and google frowns upon copying and pasting someones post. If you want to leave this recipe here, at least link back to my site, otherwise, please remove.

Gina seems a little full of herself since I have seen this same recipe (verbatim) on several blogs. You didn't invent it, Gina. Get over yourself.

Thanks for a great recipe!
