Slow-Cooker Split Pea Soup Recipe

A Split Pea Soup That Slow-Cooks Itself

Anyone who has ever attempted to cook split pea soup at home knows it's nearly impossible to cook those peas until they yield to mush. OK, maybe it's not so much that it's impossible but that you're hungry beyond patience and soup should not take three hours to make! Here's how you can avoid crunchy split pea soup: throw all the ingredients in a slow-cooker in the morning, and return home to a bubbling pot of comforting soup.

This particular recipe takes minutes to throw together. Seriously, just roughly chop those veggies and toss them in. The key to making the soup taste velvety smooth is using beef stock, ideally one that's heavy on the marrow (found at most butcher shops). It contributes to the most decadent flavor plus even a little bowl will warm you right up on bone-chilling days.
