  • 1 lb. green split peas soaked overnight
  • 1/2 cup yellow onions diced
  • 1/2 cup celery diced
  • 1 cup carrots diced
  • 6 thyme sprigs
  • 1 Tbsp. garlic minced
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • 8 oz. ham pieces


  1. Pour 2 tablespoons of salt into a large bowl. Fill bowl with lukewarm and stir to dissolve salt. Add peas to bowl and let sit overnight (or for minimum of 8 hours). Then rinse peas well.

  2. Add all ingredients to pot and give a good mix.

  3. For slightly al dente peas (which I prefer), lock lid and cook for 7 minutes at high pressure. Otherwise, cook for 10 minutes instead. 

  4. Once cook time is complete, quick-release pressure. Remove bay leaf and thyme sprigs. Serve with rice or as-is.
