Crock Pot Curried Split Pea Soup



I've been meaning to add my recipe for pea soup for a long time. This is kind of a two for one soup; The first night you have it, it is a thin-ish soup and in the subsequent days it is more like a stew; or maybe wallpaper paste like my husband calls it! He had three BIG bowls tonight so I know it was a good one.
I hope you try my version. It is really a comforting soup.

How to Make Crock Pot Curried Split Pea Soup


  1. If you want to go through the process of sauteing The veggies and garlic in a little olive oil have at it! I have found that it doesnt add that much extra to this soup, dirties more dishes and takes up my limited time.
  2. Turn your crock pot on high and add the ham bone and chicken stock.
  3. Add the veggies as you cut them up then give the pot a stir.
  4. Add seasonings to the pot and stir again.
  5. If the liquid isnt up over the vegetables you will need to add water or more stock. I usually cook my stock down so its pretty concentrated so I just add water to cover.
  6. Cook on high for three and a half hours or on low for seven. You can remove the bone and scrape the meat off or just give the soup a vigorous stir so the meat falls off the bones. I dont bother taking the bones out until I store the soup for the night.
  7. Serve with a drizzle of bacon infused olive oil...YUM!
