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)
cups diced cooked ham
teaspoon ground red pepper
teaspoon ground cloves
4 cups water
1 tablespoon ham base (See Note)
teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
cups chicken broth
1 bay leaf
cups flavored croutons
What To Do:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
