Wicked Simple Pea Soup

I made my first pea soup today. It was really easy. I looked at a few recipes and made up my own:

  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 1 lb split peas (rinsed)
  • 3 carrots (cut in 1/4 inch slices)
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 3 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper

You mix everything together in a crock pot. Let it cook on high for 6 or so hours. And voilà! Pea soup!

The spice measurements are only approximate. I just guessed with those. And the chicken broth was because we didn’t have any ham and didn’t want to go out to get any.

Best part? The kids ate it up without complaint.

It went especially well with the loaf of bread my wife made.

    I always add some barley, pearled if there’s time, quick if not. There’s some in the freezer right now.
