How to Make It
SLOW COOKER INSTRUCTIONS
1 Combine all ingredients in a large slow cooker. Set to low if using a newer slow cooker, or high if an older one, and cook for 7-9 hours. Use an immersion blender to create an even creamier texture, if desired.
1 Combine all ingredients in large soup pot, and bring to a rolling boil. Cover and reduce heat, and continue simmering for around 2 hours, or until split peas are tender and soup becomes thick and creamy. Use an immersion blender to create an even creamier texture, if desired.
