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.
  • 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.
