Yellow Split Pea Soup

 I usually make this soup with green split peas, but I had a bag of yellow split peas in the cupboard and decided to give them a whirl in the slow cooker.  The result was an easy and delicious soup, with a beautiful color palette, suitable for spring.

To make the soup, you will need:

  • Yellow split peas
  • Salt, garlic powder, and red pepper flakes to taste

  1. Rinse and sort the split peas.
  2. Add peas and water to a slow cooker with approximately 1 part peas to 3 or 4 parts water, so that the cooker is ~3/4 full.
  3. Cook on low, medium, or high heat until the peas are fully cooked and soft.
  4. Stir in salt, garlic, and red pepper to taste.
  5. Enjoy!
