2 cups dried split peas
2 quarts water
1 large or 2 medium onions, diced
2 carrots, sliced
3-4 ribs celery, sliced
1 (8 ounce) package vegan Canadian bacon style slices (I use Yves Canadian Bacon), chopped (optional)
1-2 tablespoons vegan powdered broth (I like the vegan chicken flavor)
salt and pepper, to taste
1. Put ingredients in a crockpot. Add more water as necessary for the consistency you like.
2. Cook on high to get it hot, if you have time, then lower to low or medium low. Don't fill the pot too full; this can foam up.
3. Then stir, adjust seasonings and serve. If you like it smooth, take out 1/4-1/2 of the soup and blend, add back, and stir.
All this needs is some good vegan bread, or even corn bread and supper is ready!'
