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.
