Hearty Split Pea Vegetable Soup
1 lb. ham hock
4 cups Knorr Chicken Broth
2 cups water
1-1/2 cups green split peas
3 carrots peeled and chopped
3 ribs celery chopped
1 large onion peeled and chopped
2 bay leaves
1-1/2 tsp. thyme leaves
Seasoned salt and pepper taste freshly ground
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 1 hour, 45 minutes

Combine all ingredients except thyme, salt and pepper in a large stockpot and bring to
a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 1-1/2 hours or until split peas are very tender. Remove ham hock and bay leaf. Using a blender or stick blender, blend soup until somewhat puréed, with some vegetable chunks remaining. Return to pot and add seasonings; simmer for 10 minutes more.

Makes 4 to 6 servings.

To lower the salt content, I would use a low sodium chicken broth, and not add any. Leaving out the ham would do that also.
