Last night while going through the fridge and pantry I realized that I had everything to make split pea soup in the crock pot. Letting the slow cooker bubble away while I am at the office is the easiest way to make dinner.
Ingredients: 3 cups dried split peas, 3 carrots diced, 3 celery stocks diced, 1 large white onion diced, 2 red or white potatoes finely chopped, 1 ham steak cubed, 3 cups veggie stock, 3 cups of water, salt & pepper, 1 teaspoon celery seed, 1 teaspoon garlic powder & 1 teaspoon onion powder.
Place everything in the slow cooker and cook on low for 8-10 hours. If it's a little too thick add a little water. If it's a little too thin take the lid off and cook on low for an additional 20 minutes so that some of the excess water evaporates.
I like mine with grilled cheese. Edam on Sourdough.
