Split Pea Soup (C2)

Simmie Sinow

This is good for lunch in C2 or for any meal in C3.

1 lb dried green split peas, rinsed
2 carrots, diced
2 celery stalks, diced
1/2 med yellow onion, diced
2 garlic cloves minced
1 bay leaf
4 cups chicken stock
2 cups water
Kosher Salt
Italian seasoning or other seasonings of your choice

Arrange the split peas in the slow cooker in an even layer.

Arrange the carrots, celery, onion, garlic, parsley, and bay leaf over the peas in one even layer.

Pour the chicken broth and water into the slow cooker and season with salt and pepper. Cover and cook until the peas are very soft, ~ 8 to 10 hours.

With a large spoon mix all ingredients thoroughly and use a potato masher or immersion blender to blend until this is at the consistency you desire.

Taste and season with more salt and pepper as needed.


OPTIONAL IDEAS
I also like putting some mushrooms in this for a bit of a different added flavor; not everyone enjoys that.
