Thanks-sounds very good.
This is soooo neat! I told my dh earlier today that I want to make some split pea soup one day soon! Now I'll make it in my crock pot, thanks to you! love, Darlene
I bought celery today for this, already have everything else.
I am moving and need to use up all perishables. So I have some Easter ham cubed & frozen to use up, and have some roasted chicken cubed and frozen to use up.
I've never put potatoes in my split pea soup so I will omit that, and add the ham and/or chicken.
Also something really wonderful in split pea soup is smoked turkey parts. Drums, wings, necks, tails, etc. If you've never tried it, I highly recommend smoked turkey in split pea soup, and, smoked turkey in collards. (For omnivores of course; sorry you veggies.) My mouth was watering for smoked turkey but the smallest package I could find was $5, like everything else it's really gone up. So I put it back and got the $1.49 lb chicken breast that was on my list, instead; and in the soup I will use up the frozen ham & chicken that need to be used up, instead. I can add liquid smoke.
Slow Cooker Split Pea Soup
6 cups water
2 carrots, grated
1 cup celery, chopped
1 cup split peas, dry
1/4 tsp parsley, dried
1/4 tsp garlic powder
2 potatoes, diced
1/2 onion, diced
Normally I would use diced ham, today I didn't have any so I used 2 chicken drumsticks, breaded and precooked.
Place all ingredients in the slow cooker. Set on low and cook for 8 hours.
