Andersen's Split Pea Soup (Crock Pot Version) Copycat

Andersen's Split Pea Soup (Crock Pot Version) Copycat created by Boomette

This came from the Los Angeles Times via Liz at Recipegoldmine.com. It was a stove top soup, but the closest I've yet found to Anderson's which is a tradition in California. I modified it just a bit for the crock pot and made it a hair thicker to suit our tastes. You can also add bacon, ham, or ham hocks to enhance the flavor a bit.

    This is a great low calorie pea soup for when we don't want it with bacon or ham. I didn't puree it. The texture was perfect. I cooked it on low for 8 hours. Thanks OhMyStars :) Made for Cookbook tag game

    I've long been a fan of those windmills! Like the others here, I made some tweaks. LOTS of the seasonings mentioned, and also the juice of half a lemon pulled it together.

    Thanks for the great recipe and thanks to the previous reviewers for their feedback. I followed the suggestions of So Cal Gal (April 11, 2010), cooking the veggies, (plus, a bit of garlic), and using some low-sodium chicken broth.... I also used Lawry's seasoning salt in place of table salt......It was just wonderful and filled the house with a fantastic aroma. Garnished it with a bit of chopped Black Forest Ham.....Delish!
