Slow Cooker Creamy Split Pea Soup

Creamy peas soup main

This fragrant split-pea soup made with touch of curry, cumin and sweet paprika is so creamy and velvety, hearty, thick, and flavorful. Topped with bacon and fresh chopped green onions, mmmm….Just pick up crusty bread and enjoy.

Direction:
Cook bacon using preferred method until crisp. I like to bake bacon on a cooling rack over a sheet pan in the oven at 425 for 15-20 minutes. Allow to cool and chop or crumble into small pieces.

Heat the oil in a frying pan over medium heat; add the onion, carrots and garlic; sauté until all the vegetables are tender, about 3-5 minutes.

Add 1 cup of water, ground cumin, bay leaf, paprika, black pepper and salt. Mix well until all the flavors are combined.

To the crock pot/slow cooker add washed sweet pea, sautéed vegetables and 7-8 cups of water. Mix well.

Set timer for 4 hours.
After it’s done, check the seasoning; add salt and more of the spices if needed.
In small batches pour the soup in to the food processor/blender and puree until smooth consistency. Be very careful, the soup is hot.
Scoop the soup into bowls. Serve with chopped green onion and bacon.

Notes

You defiantly can cook the soup on the stove-top. Cooking time would be about 1 ½- 2 hours on medium low heat.
