Crock Pot Split Pea Soup

I was that weird kid who loved split pea soup as a kid! I practically lived on it in college because a dollar bag of split peas could get me through a week of dinners. Now there’s a little more variety in my diet (haha) but I still love me a steaming bowl of this stuff.

It is ridiculously easy and packed with fiber and plant-based protein plus even more protein if you decide to include ham.

This recipe is obviously for a crock pot but you can also cook it in a pot on the stove if that’s better for you! Just bring everything to a boil and then simmer on low heat until the split peas are soft.

Either way you make it, it’s a great make-ahead meal and freezes well!

The Stuff

  • 1 lb of split peas
  • 6 cups water
  • 2 carrots, chopped
  • 1 onion, diced
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional: 1-2 cups of diced ham (and/or a ham bone)
  • Optional: Parmesan cheese to sprinkle

The Steps

  1. Put everything except Parmesan cheese in a crock pot
  2. Cook on high for at least 4 hours

Did you make it? I’d love to see how it turned out! Tag @bitebetanutrition on instagram.
