Slow Cooker Split Pea Soup

Slow Cooker Split Pea Soup

My children will not eat this, but maybe yours will.  Lol.  I make this for me and my husband.  It is so healthy and comforting and smells delicious when its slow cooking.  Its a perfect meal served with a loaf of crusty bread.  this time I just happened to have a ham hock in the freezer leftover from Christmas.  I usually add small potatoes instead.  It was really tasty with the ham hock.  As it slow cooked all the little bits of ham fell off the bone.

Ingredients

  • 1 bag of dried green split peas, rinsed
  • 4 carrots peeled and chopped
  • 4 stalks of celery peeled and chopped
  • 1/2 of an onion chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • A handful of chopped Italian parsley
  •  1 bay leaf
  • 1 ham hock or 5 small potatoes diced
  • 4 cups of low sodium chicken broth
  • 2 cups of water
  • salt and pepper

Directions

  • Place all the ingredients in your slow cooker in the order they are listed.
  • Cook on high for 4 hours.
  • Carefully remove and discard the bone.  Stir.
  • Place on high for one more hour.

Enjoy!
