  • Slow cooker


  • 8 cups water or vegetable broth
  • 16 ounces split peas green or yellow
  • 16 ounces red potatoes cubed
  • 1 medium onion diced
  • 2 carrots peeled and diced
  • 2 celery stalks diced
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 1-2 tablespoons curry powder depending on preference
  • 1 bay leaf
  • Sea salt and black pepper to taste
  • Fresh cilantro for garnish (optional)
  • For serving: naan or other flatbread


  • Place all of the ingredients into a slow cooker.
  • Cook on HIGH for 4 hours or LOW for 8-10 hours.
  • Remove lid and stir well. Taste and add salt and pepper. Remove bay leaf.
  • Ladle into bowls and serve warm.


8 cups of water yields a moderately thick soup. Add an extra cup of water for a thinner soup. Keep in mind that the soup will continue to thicken after cooking. If it's too thick, add a little more water or broth.Can substitute 2-3 teaspoons poultry seasoning (thyme, sage, rosemary) for the curry powder. For a vegetarian smoky split pea soup, add 1 teaspoon liquid smoke and omit curry powder.
