Crock Pot Split Pea Soup Recipe

Pin It
I don't know about you, but after Christmas the last thing I want to do is any cooking or cleaning up.  This recipe tastes very nice and cooks up as easy as anything ever in the crock pot.  We call it Grinch soup because of the green tint and my daughter thinks that is fun.  What child wouldn't want to try Grinch soup?  Give it a try when you are cooked and cleaned out.

You will Need a Crock Pot, Potatoes, Celery, Carrots, Garlic, Onion, Ham, Dry Split Peas, Bay Leaves, and dry Thyme.

Chop up the Onion, Celery, Carrot, and Potato into bite sized chunks.  I have little ones so I cut mine up very small.

Place the Veggies in the Crock Pot and mix them together.

Mince up the Garlic and add it in also.

Pour the Split Peas out and give them a good looking over.

You want to remove any rocks or things that you deem to be un-delicious.

Then give the Peas a good rinsing.

Dice up the Ham into bite sized pieces.

Add the Split Peas, Ham, and Water into the crock-pot.

Add in the Thyme, Bay Leaves, and Salt & Pepper.

Mix everything together and top with the lid.

Cook on High for 6 hours or (or low for 8-12 hours)

When the time is up Give the Soup a good stir.

Remove the Bay Leaves, cause nobody wants to eat those.
