Ok, summer is definitely here. We had an awesome day at the water park. Now it is about to storm. I made split pea soup in the crock pot but I really am not in the mood for soup and sandwiches tonight. I guess I can always save the soup it freezes well.
Crock Pot SPLIT PEA SOUP
2 cups split peas
2 qts. water
2 onions, chopped
2 carrots, peeled & sliced
4 slices Canadian bacon, cut into small
pieces (or turkey ham, or any leftover ham or leave the ham out for vegetarian)
2 Tbsp. nonfat chicken bouillion powder
Freshly ground black pepper
Put all ingredients in the crock pot. Add more water for the consistency you like. Cook on high to get it hot, if you have time, then lower the heat setting to low and cook 8 hours. Don't fill the crock pot too full, due to foaming. Stir, adjust the seasonings and serve. If you like the soup creamy, take out 1/2 c. of the soup and puree in food processor, then blend back into the soup. Serves 6. 424 calories per serving. 4 g fat. 8% from fat.
