Split Pea Soup

Yeah, not a soup a lot of folks like just from the word Pea. Personally, I love it. Nice and creamy, warm and soothing on a cold winter's day. This makes a good size concentration of soup. Enough for either a party of 8 or just scoop it into freezer bags, lay flat and freeze. This is what I do so I can have pea soup whenever the urge occurs! The best part is this can be a dairy free soup!

I have it paired with my Carrot Sticks.

16oz Dried Peas
2 Carrots, diced
2 cup Ham, chopped
3 tbsp Garlic, minced
2 Bay Leaves
2 tsp Parsley, dried
1/2 tsp Crushed Red Pepper
1/2 tsp Salt
1 cup Spinach, fresh
1 tsp Worestershire Sauce
6 cup Chicken Broth
1 cup Milk or Water
Sour Cream (Optional)
Carrot Sticks

1) In crock pot, layer each ingredient as listed except for the milk/water. Set on low and let cook 8-10 hours. 

2) Remove about half and whip in blender. Return to pot and add the milk/water. Use as much as you like depending on how thick you want your soup. Bring back to heat and serve warm with a dollup of Sour Cream on top and Carrot Sticks on the side.
