Sonia's Split Pea Soup

3 cups smoked ham stock
2 cups split peas
2 tablespoon olive oil
1 diced onion
1 fresh carrot cut into small pieces
2 minced garlic heads
salt and pepper

In a soup pan heat the oil and saute onions, carrot, and garlic with some salt and pepper until onions start to turn brown. Pour the warm stock and split peas to the pot and simmer until peas are soft. Around 45 minutes to 1 hour. Server and garnish with crispy croutons or dice ham. Serves 6

*My new neighbor in Dallas gave me a smoked ham and I decide to create this soup!
