  • 2 TB olive oil
  • 8 oz ham diced
  • 1 yellow onion medium, diced
  • 2 medium carrots diced
  • 1 celery stalk diced
  • 1 medium potato peeled and diced
  • 16 oz split peas
  • 8 cups broth vegetable or chicken
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper


  • Turn Instant Pot to Sauté. Add oil and then onion. Cook until the onion begins to soften, about 2 minutes.
  • Add the ham and continue to cook for 4-5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add all other ingredients and stir. Seal Instant Pot and turn it to the Soup/Broth setting (35 minutes).
  • Once the cooking cycle is complete, allow the Instant Pot to vent naturally for at least 20 minutes before manually venting and opening.
  • Remove bay leaf and stir the soup well to distribute all ingredients.
