  • Author: Pip Payne
  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: 8 1x


My Mum used to make this for me when I was little, it’s so simple but tasty, filling and satisfying 



  • 2 onions (finely chopped)
  • 2 large carrots (finely diced)
  • 750 g approx unsmoked gammon joint, cut into chunks
  • 500 g yellow split peas (These need to be soaked overnight in preparation)
  • 1 litre vegetable stock
  • salt and pepper


  1. Place the chopped onion, carrot, ham, split peas and stock into the slow cooker bowl. Season.
  2. Cook on high for 6-8 hours, or low for 10-12 hours
  3. Additional Info


I like the soup to have a thick consistency, but if you prefer it thinner you can always dilute with more water.
