Slow Cooker Green Split Pea & Ham Soup

11 Apr

SLOW COOKER SPLIT PEA SOUP

(Great recipe to make with leftover Easter Ham)

1 16oz package Green Split Peas

2 cups diced, cooked ham

(You can also add the ham bone)

3 carrots chopped

1/2 cup diced onions

2 ribs celery (including leaves) chopped

2 cloves fresh garlic minced

1 bay leaf

12-15 sprigs fresh parsley-chopped

Pinch of salt

(Ham is already salty)

1/2 tsp ground pepper

1 1/2 quarts or 6 cups liquid

( I divided the liquid with using 4 cups Organic Chicken stock & 2 cups water)

Β 

Instructions:

Prepare ingredients by washing all veggies.

Dice the carrots, celery & onions all the same size therefore,

all vegetables will be finished cooking at the same time.

Chop the fresh parsley(about ΒΌ cup)

Now start layering the ingredients in the slow cooker in order listed.

Do not stir to mix.

Pour the liquids(water & stock) over the layers.

Cover & cook for on HIGH for 4-5 hours.

On Low 8-10 hours.

Remove bay leaf and stir to blend soup.

(you can mash peas to thicken)

The peas in my soup were already blended to a creamy consistency

so I didn’t need to use an emulsifier .

Enjoy !
