"Kitchen Sink" Split Pea Soup

"Kitchen Sink" Split Pea Soup

2 to 2 1/2 pounds smoked pork shanks
garlic (lots!) chopped or pressed
2 onions chopped
a little olive oil
1# split peas
1/2 # navy beans
3 carrots chopped
1/4 - 1/2 head red cabbage chopped
2 - 3 cups broccoli florets
1/2 cup mild (or not!) red chile peppers or 1 red bell pepper chopped
1 cup frozen corn (or one can drained)
mushrooms sliced

Soak the navy beans overnight, change the soaking water a couple of times. Also overnight cook the pork on low in a crock pot.

Next morning remove the meat, bones and fat from the pork broth and reserve the meat. Add the split peas and beans to the broth and cook till the peas are disintegrated and the beans are soft. Brown the onion and garlic and add to the soup.

Add the carrots and cook until they are nearly done. Add the rest of the veggies and the reserved meat. Cook until the veg are as done as you like them.

Serve with a good bread, cheese and fruit.
