Split Pea Soup

This fabulous Split Pea Soup was made using the Design Series 3-quart Manual Slow Cooker and it couldn't be more simple!

If there is a meal that I could eat rain or shine it would have to be soup. I love how soup can check all the boxes. It is comforting, nourishing, warm and cozy and has all the healthy elements of a well rounded meal wrapped up in a humble bowl. Soup is a superfood in my opinion, cause it’s got all the bases covered. Soup with all its nutritional benefits has one more thing that I have yet to mention. It is EASY to come together and when you read this recipe, you will realize exactly what I mean. It just doesn’t get easier than this folks.

I am super pleased to announce that I have partnered up with Crockpot and will be bringing you a new recipe using Crockpot’s wonderful slow cookers over the next 6 months. I will show you just how convenient these machines are without compromising taste! I don’t know about you, but I grew up with a Crockpot. My Mom used Crockpot (she still does) so the fact that I get to create my own recipes using them is really awesome, nostalgic and I really really cool

  • Slow Cooker

  • 1 clove garlic (minced)
  • 1 medium carrot (small dice)
  • cups fennel (diced)

  • Season with chili flakes, salt and pepper. Bring soup to a bubble, then reduce heat to low and cook for 4-5 hours until vegetables are soft and tender.
