This classic Quebecois soup gets new life with the addition of smoked turkey instead of the traditional ham hock. Look for smoked turkey thighs instead of the legs - they've got more meat and less sinew. You can find them near the deli counter at the grocery store.

Ingredients

  • 2 carrots diced
  • 2 ribs celery diced
  • 1 onion diced
  • 1 2/3 cup yellow split peas
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 clove
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 3/4 teaspoons dried savory
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 smoked turkey thigh (about 750 g)

Method

In slow cooker, combine carrots, celery, onion, split peas, bay leaves, clove, garlic powder, savory, salt, pepper and 6 cups water. Arrange turkey over top. Cover and cook on high until peas and turkey are tender, about 4 hours.

Transfer turkey to large bowl; let cool slightly.

Meanwhile, remove bay leaves and clove from slow cooker. Using immersion blender, purée soup until almost smooth.

Remove and discard bone and fat from turkey. Using 2 forks, shred into bite-size pieces; stir into soup.
