SUPER EASY Slow Cooker Split Pea Soup

Wanna know the easiest soup recipe EVER?

Split pea soup.  In the crock pot.

I couldn't think of a healthier soup out there.

Winter season is comin' up and this is bound to warm up your insides.

So, give it a go.

What you need:
Note:  I made a FULL crock pot of soup.  If you want less, cut amounts in half.

3 cups dry split peas, rinsed
12 cups water or vegetable broth
4 stalks celery, chopped
3 carrots, chopped
4 cloves garlic, chopped
(Another vegetable to use is leeks.  I did not use any in this recipe)
2 bay leaves
Salt and pepper to taste
Cayanne, for spice (optional)
Chipotle powder (optional)
If you are new to my blog, you will quickly learn that I LOVE Chipotle seasoning.  If your not a fan, just leave it out.

I also add some hot sauce and cheese on top of mine before eating because those are two must-haves for all my meals.  Again, leave them out if they're not your thing.

Chop vegetables.  Toss in crock pot.
Rinse split peas.  Toss in crock pot.
Measure out 12 cups water or vegetable brother and pour into crock pot.
Add garlic and bay leaves and other seasoning.
Cover.  Cook on low for at least 8 hours.
Season to taste.

This is vegetarian, obviously.
Growing up my mom would always throw in a ham hock to give it some meaty, salty flavor.  If you don't have a ham hock, you can throw in some fatty bacon instead!
Pin It!

Hi! You mentioned that you like all things soup - so do I! I have some leftover celery and carrots from some chicken and dumplings I made the other day - I think this is what they will be used for!

Awesome that it's vegetarian! :D
This is perfect for cold winter nights, and an easy meal to throw together, and forget until you're super hungry! :)
