Here is another time savor recipe that my family loves. It is super easy to make, too. Golden Split Pea Soup made in the crock pot. Toss the ingredients in the crock pot, set it and forget it until dinner time.
Golden Split Pea Soup
1 1/2 cups of dried yellow split peas, cleaned
1 medium yellow onion, chopped
2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
6 cups of unsalted chicken broth or water (I use 2 c. of chicken broth and 4 c. of water)
2 tsp. chicken bouillon granules
2 tsp. ground cumin
2 tsp ground coriander
1/2 tsp. ground ginger
1/2 tsp ground turmeric
1/8 tsp. ground white pepper
Toss everything in the crock pot and set it on high. It takes about 5 or 6 hours to cook.
Use an immersion blender right in the crockpot and puree it.
I freeze leftovers in small containers for lunches.
