A quick recipe for you guys today. It is a true classic and for those who have slow-cookers, I would recommend tossing all ingredients in them before you leave for work in the morning and let it slow-cook on low heat for 8 hours give or take few. I promise you, the hearty broth resulting from that slow meltdown and infusing of flavors will warm you to the core. I made this yesterday, when I had a ton of work to do. I forgot about it and it rewarded me by being a good soup that cooked itself to perfection. Dinner was very satisfying accompanied by crusty garlic ciabatta.
Slow cooked Ham And Pea Soup
1 cup split green peas
1 cup bacon, chopped
1 cup ham, chopped
1 white onion, coarsely chopped
1 carrot, diced
2 bay leaves
salt and freshly ground black pepper
Put all ingredients in a slow cooker and cook on high for 4-5 hours.
Well and truly the perfect weather for this! Thanks for the reminder.. now I'm craving soup 🙂
Thanks guys! It's amazing how many classics are all time favorites and how we never really think of them in our quest for newer more adventurous recipes !
Nice and simple and yet the ham adds so much flavour!
I love pea and ham soup looks great nice blog Rebecca
My kind of meal! Looks fantastic. Pea soup is one of my all-time faves.
I think pea soup is one of my top 5 favorite soups. SO GOOD! I've never made it in a slow cooker before though, I'm always scared of leaving something on when I'm out of the house 🙁
