Thai Twist Slow Cooker Vegetarian Split Pea Soup

READY IN: 4hrs 15mins
Recipe by magpie diner

Some days you just need a slow cooker meal...! Love soups and was looking for something a little different. If you have an open jar or packet of thai curry paste in your fridge, and you like the flavour of it, this is another way to enjoy it. Most of the items are pantry staples, which is how this came to be, and it's fairly low calorie/low fat. I made it to fit a small crock pot (2.5 Q I think)....yields enough for 2 good sized portions. If you use a larger crock pot you would probably have to double the recipe. Some flat bread on the side makes it a meal.

DH was a bit weary of this one but he really enjoyed it!! I could have sworn I had pearl barley in the pantry but when I went to make this I couldn't find it. I was going to try buckwheat groats but I've never actually cooked with them so I went with brown rice instead. I did add more liquid as we let this in the crock pot all most all day. Thanks for such a unique recipe MagpieDiner!! Made for Veg*n Swap 26!!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Add the items to your slow cooker and stir.
  2. In the small cooker it only took 4 hours on high, which could easily be stretched out to 8 hours on low. Keep an eye on the water content -- it may need more water or broth added depending on your cooker.
