Crock Pot Curried Split Pea Soup

"A spin off your regular split pea soup recipe and a great way to use up leftover ham! I used my leftover ham bone from Christmas dinner. The kids loved it. I got this recipe using Better Homes and Gardens' "Slow Cooker Meals.""

  1. I was just at my first attempt of making split pea soup, while I was looking through the PAC autumn 09 adoption list. Pot was already on the stove, so I decided to try out the recipe and adopt you. I love this soup! It's fast and easy to put together and it's so yummy.Half of it didn't make it to the table. I split the soup in two -as it was my first try at making it- half I make it with curry and half without it. Now I can't decide which one was better. I soaked the peas overnight so it didn't take this long to boil.
  2. Couldn't pass this one - a split pea soup that one can put together so quickly and have the crock pot do all the work - perfect for those days when kitchen time is limited and there's a chill in the air. That it tasted like I had spent all day in the kitchen rates a high five! Find I have become keen on curry - the curry along with the rest of the ingredients has this one in my soup collection - it's a wonderful split pea soup.Thank you.


Moved here from San Diego in 2002. Moved to this country with my Italian parents when I was 3. I am newly married to a wonderful, handsome man, originally from Holland, and I am a mother of a beautiful little girl. By trade I am a chemist but I'm more passionate about cooking than chemistry (but if you really think about it, they are one and the same). My favorite cookbook is without a doubt Moosewood - Anything by Moosewood. I am a horrible baker (you can't taste while you cook! How do people do that?) but am making great strides and attempts at doing better at it.
