CrockPot Split Pea Soup Recipe

CrockPot Split Pea Soup Recipe
 

It is that time of the month again, to reveal our Secret Recipe Club recipe (maybe I should reword that opening statement!) . I decided to go with her Crockpot Split Pea Soup Recipe.

Crockpot Split Pea Soup

I am a sucker for Split Pea soup and it seems that no two recipes I have come across are the same. When I saw Grandma Loy’s Split Pea Soup recipe I thought of my own Grandmother who used to make this for us as well.

 

I improvised a little bit as I just dumped everything into the Crockpot in the am, emulsified the soup with a blender about 2 hours before serving and let it stay in the crockpot until we were all home for dinner

 
 
I also used the Knorr Chicken Stock Concentrate because I had some on hand. I usually use the low sodium broth but I added a little more water to compromise!
 
 
Verdict:  Great flavor and we all love the smoothness once it is blended. My husband actually asked how much creme was in the recipe. So if you don’t need the flavor of Ham in your split pea soup this is a great alternative.

Slow Cooker Split Pea Soup

Slow Cooker Split Pea Soup

Yield: 6 Servings
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 6 hours
Total Time: 6 hours 15 minutes

A souped easy soup recipe that you just dump everything into your crock pot.

Ingredients

  • Split Pea Soup from Woman's Day
  • 1 lb. split peas, green or yellow (2 1/4 c.)
  • 5 c. water
  • 1 can, 14 oz. chicken broth or 2 c. water and 1 T. instant chicken bouillon or soup base
  • 1 lg. onion, chopped
  • 2 med. carrots, chopped
  • 2 lg. cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 t. thyme leaves, crushed
  • 1/2 t. pepper
  • 3/4 t. salt, I omit if using the instant bouillon

Instructions

  1. Pour peas into pie tin or other flat surface to check that there are no rocks or other foreign objects in with the peas. Put the peas in a 4-qt. pot. Add remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, cover and simmer 90 minutes or until peas are soft. Stir occasionally. Makes 6 servings.
  2. (Close to Home's crock pot recipe: Just dump all ingredients into the crock pot. Cook on low for 7-8 hours. Emulsify with a hand blender and then continue to heat until serving.) I stirred it every so often at the end as it started to get thick in crock pot.

  7. Split pea soup, a great memory from my childhood. My dad used to travel a lot, so my mom would frequently fall back on Campbell’s soups for dinner. Split pea soup was one of my frequent choices. I have been meaning to make some homemade split pea soup for some time and now, thanks to you and Loy, I have a tried and true recipe.

  8. Surprise, we had each others’ blogs for Secret Recipe Club. I didn’t know they did that. I am so glad that you like the soup. It is one of my hubby’s favorites. I have never used a slow cooker to make it, but I will have to give that a try. A version of your 123 Cookies is what I made. I was just about to leave a comment on that post when I saw this one. Great recipe, and I will be making it again and again. I love the diversity of your blog, and will be dropping by for Friday Food Frenzy. Thanks for sharing.
