Split Pea Soup

It’s a rainy day, the perfect day to make split pea soup and warm French bread. I love cooking in the crock pot. By the time dinner is ready you have forgotten that you were the one who made it. It’s like someone else is cooking for you. Here’s my recipe that my kids and I LOVE. I adapted it from one I found on the Whole Foods website. If you are the meat eating kind, theirs is probably great too. I have my dreaded Delestrogen shot tonight and I’m having a nurse friend over to assist me. Once I get to Progesterone (which will be daily) I want to be able to do them on my own without traumatizing myself. Mom to be has been busy growing eggs and handling her meds well. She has 30+ eggs! T-10 days and counting!

Split Pea Soup


1 (16-oz) package dried green split peas, rinsed
1 cup sliced baby carrots
1 cup chopped yellow onion
2 ribs celery plus leaves, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 bay leaf
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
Salt and pepper to taste

Liquid smoke to taste
6 cups vegetable broth


Layer ingredients in slow cooker in the order given, adding the broth last. Do not stir ingredients. Cover and cook on high 4—5 hours or on low 8—10 hours until peas are very soft. It will thicken up once you stir it and the peas should look almost pureed.
