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:
- 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.
