    Sharon123's Note:

    Cardamom and garam masala add subtle spice to split peas and sweet potatoes. Directions for making on the stove and for the slow cooker. I like to add a little curry powder to spice it up even more! Adapted from Whole Foods.

      Very good and easy using the crockpot. I did skip the garam masala but used the curry powder adn ground cumin. I also used green split peas. I didn't soak the split peas but added more water to the crockpot, but don't think I needed to. Thanks for sharing!

      This soup is a gift from God! This is why I cook. I love this soup. My local grocer didn't carry yellow lentils, so I used green. Made as directed and wouldn't change a thing. Thanks, Sharon123! My kindred spirit! Made for Veggie Recipe Swap #42.
