When the onions are tender and kielbasa has a little color, toss in 2 cloves of minced garlic and cook for one more minute. Place the contents of the skillet into your crockpot.

Add in the carrots and celery. Pour in 4 cups of chicken broth and one cup of water.

Add in a cup of dry split peas.

Cut two large russet potatoes into 1 inch pieces. You can peel them if you like, but I leave the skin on for the extra fiber.

DSC_0012_edited-1

Add the potatoes to the crockpot and stir these all together.

Add in a half teaspoon each of salt, pepper, thyme and oregano, and one bay leaf.

  1. I usually wait till I have a ham bone to make split pea soup but, now I’m thinking, why not use sausage?! All this wasted time not eating split pea soup more often. Thanks, Conni!
