This slow cooker split pea soup ("Erbsensuppe im Langsamkocher") is so quick to put together in the morning before you leave for the day. Then, when you come home, and you're hungry, dinner's ready!
This tastes best if it's cooked with a ham bone. If you don't have that, smoked sausage or kielbasa work well too. (Even a small cooked or smoked ham can be used.)
Use your slow cooker and come home to a dinner that's ready to serve. Quick and Easy!
Recipe sounds easy? How about even easier?
Get the vegetables peeled and chopped the night before, making sure the chopped potatoes are put in a bowl and covered with water so that they don't turn brown.
In the morning, just put all the vegetables (drained potatoes), meat, spices, peas, and water into the crock pot and turn on.
You may have to adjust the times to suit your slow cooker. Times will vary with different brands of cookers (crockpots). Keep track of the settings and times you use for the various recipes to help gauge times for new recipes.
The top picture has pieces of ham and fried onions added to make the soup even more special.
The yellow pea soup on the right is plain - but delicious as well.
If you like your soup thicker, once it is cooked, turn cooker to high, remove lid and simmer till desired consistency is reached.
Stir occasionally so that it doesn't stick to the bottom. If you like your soup thinner, add some milk or cream.
Either way, serve with some fresh bread, and enjoy!
Want it creamy like the soup on the right? Use an immersion blender.
