Split Pea Soup

Split Pea Soup
This is one of those wonderful, homey dishes that you can throw together in the Slow Cooker or Crock Pot in less than 10 minutes, and come home to a meal like Grandma might have made in the evening.

It's a classic soup, basic comfort food, simple, and economical.

Split Pea Soup
1 bag Frozen Mirepoix mix (or, 1/2 Cup Each, Carrots, Celery & Onions)
1 teaspoon Thyme
1 ½ teaspoon Celery Salt (or 1/2 teaspoon Celery Seed & 1 teaspoon Salt)
1 cube Bouillon 
2 teaspoon Garlic
2 cups Split Peas, rinsed and sorted (a 1# bag)
6 cups water
Cook on high in Crock Pot (about 5-7 hours is okay, it may be done in 3-4 hours, but it’s hard to overcook this one) You can also simmer this till done - for about an hour - on stove top.

Freezes Well.

Of course, if you are preparing this for any special diet, make sure that all ingredients you select (especially spices & seasonings) fit your needs.

To Serve: Serve with Crusty Bread & Salad. May be topped with Croutons or Popcorn.

My favorite flavours for this dish: Top it with a generous sprinkle of Mrs. Dash Southwest Chipotle Seasoning Blend, then serve with Crispy Pita Chips crumbled on top.

Tip for Dining with Omnivores: Serve some diced Ham or Crumbled Bacon for a Garnish. Cheese & Crackers also go well.

  1. I wanted to make Split Pea Soup for my Mostly Liquids Week this week and then I couldn't find Split Peas in my local bulk section! Eeeeek! This looks great, tho!

    1. I get them at the grocery, in the "dry beans" section - maybe you'll have better luck there : )

      I admire your mostly liquids thing!

Welcome!
Please, DO chime in! : )

If you want to share a link to a pertinent and supportive post of your own that directly relates to my post (if, for instance, you also have a great vegan pancake recipe, or a post about Christmas) I don't mind a bit!

I encourage any questions about methods, measurements, or cooking times, and comments about typos, broken links, mistakes, omissions, etc. I also welcome thoughtful questions - even if you disagree with me.

I often take a few days to post your comment, and a few after that to reply. Please don't think I'm ignoring you if my response is slow - I'm just not always connected to technology.

Delighted to have you here! Post away!
