  • 1 lb (16 oz) dried split peas, sorted and rinsed
  • 3 carrots, chopped
  • 2 celery stalks with leaves, chopped
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 cup chopped grape tomatoes
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • big pinch kosher salt and fresh ground pepper
  • 4 cups chicken or vegetable broth
  • 2 cups water


  1. Add your ingredients to the slow cooker, starting with the split peas on the bottom.
  2. Cook on High for 4-5 hours or Low 8-10 hours. Stir well to combine ingredients before serving. Taste for salt and pepper, adjust to your liking.


  • Soups like this split pea soup tend to thicken up in the refrigerator so be sure to add a little water to your soup before reheating in the microwave or the stovetop.
  • I used grape tomatoes because they are what I had on hand but plum tomatoes or even a can of diced tomatoes would make a great substitute.
  • You’ll need a slow cooker to make this recipe as written, but it can easily be adapted to stove-top.
