Split Pea & Potato Soup (Slow  Cooker)

split pea and potato soup

We love split pea soup but sometimes it’s a little too thick and heavy for Spring/Summer.  Here’s a recipe for a lighter version that’s just as delicious, has very few ingredients and cooks in the slow cooker.

This recipe is great for vegetarians, it’s also economical and very simple to prepare.  Enjoy!

Recipe

  • 8 cups of water
  • 2 cups yellow split peas (rinsed & drained)
  • 1 cup diced potato
  • I cup diced onion
  • 1 tsp minced garlic (or substitute 1/2 tsp garlic powder)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp pepper

Combine all ingredients in your slow cooker. Cover and cook on high for 6-7 hours.

Add salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste.

Variations:  Add chopped celery and/or carrots.
