Slow Cooker Split Pea Soup

split pea soup

This hearty soup is on the menu for this weekend. I love cooking it in the slow cooker but if you don’t have one, just boil your ham hock or ham bone together with the ingredients listed in this recipe on a stove top. It takes about an hour and a half.

  1. I didn’t have a ham bone, but I lightly fried up 4 slices of bacon. It’s just as good. Thanks for the recipe. I too used chicken broth, to replace some of the flavor lost because I lacked the ham bone.

I will link back to your site, but please let me know if you’d rather I didn’t the recipe in full — just email me and I’ll take it down right away.

  7. You’re welcome, Glitterati. Glad you enjoyed it. I like that addition of chicken broth. I’m going to try that next time!

  8. Was this ever delicious! I think this is one of the best soups I’ve ever tasted in my life. Made it in the slow cooker using a meaty bone from one of those big dense smoked hams, and threw in a few extra chunks of ham for good measure. Used half chicken broth & half water, and cooked it 5 hours or so on high. It’s so creamy and rich-tasting, and so satisfying. Perfect to have in the freezer for a quick meal. Thank you!

  9. Thanks Cheri. So glad you enjoyed it!

  10. Thank you for a fabulous recipe. I made the soup today and it was the best ever! I have tried many pea soup recipes over the years yours is the BEST
