Pea Soup

1 Bag split peas
1 Carton beef broth
2 Bay leaves
ΒΌ Cup finely chopped onion

Place split peas in slow cooker. Cover with beef broth and add onions and bay
leaves. Cook for three to four hours on high or longer on medium heat, stirring
each hour, until soup is a smooth consistency. I like to use an immersion blender to blend it all really smooth when it's done cooking.

My favorite slow cooker resource (which has now also become two great cookbooks) is the blog A Year of Slow Cooking (http://crockpot365.blogspot.com). Many awesome, delicious ideas!


Wow, this plus the Crock Pot love letter on Stuff Christians Like makes me think I should really invest some time in learning to use a slow cooker. Thanks! :)


Slow cooker "12 hour stews" - favorites for me also. Cold weather and comfort food, absolutely! Unfortuntely... though I love the results, my kids usually don't! (Oh well, more for me that way....)


Prayers from here, Carolyn.


Yum. I love my slow cooker, and use it all the time. I have lots of recipes from here and there and I think the Taste of Home Slow Cooker compilation. One of my favorite stews in the winter is very easy and works equally well with either chicken breasts or thighs or with pork chops or cutlets. Chop up 2-3 pounds of potatoes (fingerlings are especially nice) several carrots, an onion cut into wedges. Put the potatoes, carrots, onions in and layer the meat on top. Dump one can of (low sodium) mushroom soup and one can (low sodium) cream of chicken soup over the top, sprinkle with fresh ground pepper, and cook on high for 8 hours.


Oh I love this post and all the comments...drool drool.


Here is an amazing slow cooker Baked Potato Soup!



May I ask what size you bought? I'm not sure which size would be practical for me. I cook for others sometimes, but I live by myself.

In retail, the month when crockpots start flying off the shelves is called "Crocktober."
