Split Pea Soup

Don't you just love having a nice warm bowl of soup when it's cold outside? I sure do, and this recipe makes that even easier because you cook it in the slow cooker! Add some rolls, maybe a nice salad and you've got a hearty, warm meal.

Split Pea Soup

from Cuisinart Slow Cooker Cookbook

2 garlic cloves, peeled

8 ounces onion, peeled and chopped

1 celery stalk, chopped, top off, cut into 1-inch pieces

12 ounces waxy potatoes cut into 1/2-inch cubes

12 ounces carrots, peeled and thinly sliced

1 pound green split peas, rinsed

6 cups chicken stock

1 12 ounce ham hock (or roasted turkey leg)

1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

1 tablespoon thyme

1/4 cup dry sherry


Place all ingredients but the sherry into the ceramic pot of the slow cooker. Cover and cook on High for 1 hour. Once time elapses, cook on Low for 7 to 8 hours.

To serve, remove ham hock and discard bone, chop meat, and return it to soup. Stir in sherry.
