Ingredients

  • 1 pound (16 oz.) dried split peas, sorted
  • 1 yellow onion, peeled and chopped
  • 4 carrots, large diced
  • 3 celery stalks, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced (about 2 tsp)
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher salt, plus more as needed
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground pepper, plus more as needed
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika (optional)
  • 1 dried bay leaf
  • ½ cup fresh parsley, chopped
  • 4 sprigs fresh thyme, leaves removed (or 1 tsp dried thyme leaves)
  • 7 cups vegetable broth

Directions

  1. Quickly rinse your sorted split peas and drain.
  2. Add all of your ingredients to your slow cooker and stir to combine.
  3. Place the cover on your slow cooker and set to the low setting, 6-8 hours.
  4. Once finished cooking, remove the bay leaf, and using a whisk break up the peas by stirring the soup. If you like a thinner soup add additional broth or water until you get the consistency you like. If you like a creamier soup, using an immersion blender to pulse the soup a few times for a smoother, yet still chunky texture.
  5. Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve.

Serving suggestion: Garnish with a sprinkle of smoked paprika and/or croutons!
