Split Pea Soup

What you need: 

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

What you do: 

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!'

SO HOW'D IT GO?

I loved it! Turned out great, our whole family loved it, and we had leftovers :)

This recipe is simple but it's also really good and it makes a lot of soup! I've tried split pea soup in the past, but never been able to get it right before this. I left out the fake meat (I'm trying to eat less processed food) and used the liquid smoke instead and it was fine, but I may try tempeh in the future.

@Cryphgirl - did you soak your peas overnight before cooking them? I did and they were fine.

Tried this, but unfortunately my split peas had the HTC defect, so they didn't soften. Will try again with better split peas.

Wonderful and oh so easy!!  Thank you!  I left out the meat and added a couple drops of liquid smoke, took roughly six hours.

This recipe was good~ ;)b The only thing I changed, was adding tempeh instead of the St. Yves vegetarian slices. :)

I left out the fake meat and used liquid smoke to give it that smokey undertone. Very good!

very easy, cheap and satisfying. i used vegan 'chicken' broth and left out the celery and carrots. it took about four hours in the crock pot on high. i will freeze the remainder in little containers for my work lunches.

K, I will try that . I've done that in the past-just seem like there was something missing in it.I will learn to do w/o.

I'm not a huge fan of using the fake meats, so I leave them out. However, in split pea soup, sometimes that smoky flavor really does the trick. I use Liquid Smoke (about a half teaspoon or so--a little goes a long way) to get that "meaty" flavor. My omni mom couldn't tell at all. It's cheaper too! A bottle costs about a dollar, and will probably last a year or more. I also like to add a couple of cubed potatoes--they really add body to the soup! Yummy!
