Soup Magic: Homestyle Split Pea


When I think of split pea soup I think simple. A warm, savory stew of peas, tender chunks of carrots and celery with just a hint of onion and garlic.

This recipe is simple as simple can be. I load the ingredients in the crockpot on my way out the door in the morning, and by lunchtime I have a thick, hearty soup. That’s magic.

Magic Split Pea Soup

1 pound green split peas, rinsed

2 large carrots, peeled and diced

2 stalks celery, diced

1 small onion, diced

1 large garlic clove, finely minced

6 cups vegetable broth



Just pour everything into the crockpot, cover and cook on low for 3 ½ – 4 hours. Check for salt and add seasonings to taste. Yield: 6 – 8 servings.

  1. What a delicious looking cup of soup! We’re heading into soup weather now, so I’ll be sure to make this very soon. Like so many families these days, we are a busy one with work and sport activities. It’s so nice to have a healthy soup in the crock pot that we can come home to and eat in a jiffy.
