Easy Split Pea Soup in the Slow Cooker

This is a great tasting soup which is easy on the pocket, totally nourishing and very warming on a cold winter’s night. One of the best parts of slow cooking - a nice hot supper already made for you when you get in from a hard day of work! For a complete protein I recommend dipping a crispy whole grain dinner roll into this hearty meal.
-        2 cups of dried split peas
-        6 cups water or vegetable stock (preferably homemade)
-        1 small yellow onion, chopped
-        2 carrots, peeled and chopped
-        2 celery stalks, chopped
-        Some salt and pepper to taste

1.     Rinse and sort through the split peas
2.     Place everything in the slow cooker for 8-10 hours on low or 4-6 on high
3.     Serve with whole grain crusty rolls or fresh French baguette with organic butter
