Split Pea soup is always a favorite and this slow cooker Chunky Split Pea Soup is no exception. It feels and tastes so good going down... it's comfort in every bite!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 (16-ounce) package dried split peas
  • 5 large carrots, chopped (about 2 cups)
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 3 celery stalks, chopped (about 1 cup)
  • 1 1/2 cups diced cooked ham
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 tablespoon ham base (See Note)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 1/4 cups flavored croutons
What To Do:
  1. Place peas in a 5- to 6-quart slow cooker. Cover with water 2-inches above peas; let soak 8 hours (see Note). Drain and rinse; return peas to slow cooker. Add remaining ingredients except croutons to slow cooker.
     
  2. Cover and cook on LOW setting 8 hours or until peas are tender and soup is thick. Remove and discard bay leaf. Ladle into individual bowls, top evenly with croutons, and serve immediately.
     
Notes
  • Look for ham base in the supermarket near the bouillon.

  • Soak the peas the night before, and they'll be ready for the slow cooker the next morning.

Delicious. Only take it easy on the cloves. Next time I will double the recipe.

I never heard of non-split peas,perhaps soaking longer? follow pkg directions. I always use soup base,never use bouillon(too salty,not enough flavor) and would omit the salt (theres enough in the soup base) Also I add garlic powder and ham bone for extra flavor. You can always add salt to taste when served. I dont add clove either but thats what I prefer

Would this work with dried whole non-split green pea?

It should
