Split pea & Bacon soup
Whenever the temperatures drop to below 16 degrees, in my view it’s time for soup! So why not give my Split Pea and Bacon Soup a try. Healthy? Tick. Yummy? Tick? Easy? Tick tick tick!!! I can guarantee that your family will love this recipe. My method is to start the soup off in the slow cooker while I busy myself with work and then to finish it off on the stove top. I fry the bacon separately and add it right at the end. This ensures that I have nice and crispy bacon bits that add all the flavour to the soup. For this soup you have the option to blend it right at the end if you prefer a smoother consistency. Otherwise you can serve it like I do without blending. I like to chew of all the components sometimes.
