Split Pea Soup (Slow Cooker) | The Gluten-Free Homemaker

I first learned to like split pea soup when my husband bought me a pressure cooker. I made this soup for him, not intending to eat any, but it smelled so good that I gave it a try and have been eating it ever since.

I love how fast the pressure cooker is at cooking split pea soup, but the slow cooker is perfect for this soup which needs a lot of cooking. It’s one slow cooker meal that you don’t have to worry about overcooking. Leave it on low for 8 hours or more, and it will be just perfect.

This recipe is a little different than my pressure cooker version, but just as delicious. It’s a recipe that is easy to play with. You can adjust the amounts of vegetables, or try adding a little potato. You can vary the herbs and use ones you like best.

    This recipe sounds great! What brand of gluten free chicken broth do you use? I am newly diagnosed and still exploring products.

    Our family does not eat pork. Do you have any suggestions for a substitute
    for the ham? This looks delicious and I love the slow cooker!
