Slow Cooker Split Pea Soup

Slow Cooker Split Pea Soup add or remove this to/from your favorites

Cooking for Yom Tov, even in large quantities, (even in a year and place when Yom Tov runs into Shabbos), does not need to be super time consuming. Cooking in two or three slow cookers, for example, produces multiple soups, meats, chickens, and even meatballs, matzah balls, and applesauce, etc. It’s almost like having a robot!


Without the special dietary details necessary to make Pesach, Yom Tov may be made using my book’s recipes and just adding challah, salads, and a jacket (to take it out to the sukkah)!


Main ingredients

  • 1 pound green split peas

  • 1 onion, chopped

  • 2 carrots, chopped

  • 3 teaspoons salt

  • 1 teaspoon oregano

  • 6 cups water

  • 1 teaspoon onion powder

  • 6 shakes black pepper

  • 1 bay leaf


Prepare the Soup


Put everything in the crock pot. Cook on low for six to eight hours, or on high for four hours and then low another three.


Remove bay leaf before serving. Serve with some tuna salad and garlic bread, and voila.

Crock Pot Shalom from Israel!

I have a question,
what if I don’t have a crock pot, and don’t really wanna go and buy one, can I use just a regular cooking pot?
If so, in what way can I cook with the regular cooking pot?

Thank you in advance.

Hi! You can definitely make it in a regular pot. I would just bring it to a boil and either cook it on low for 6-8 hours on the stove or on medium for 4-5 hours.
