Almost as good as Nan's… Pea Soup recipe!

Hey guys!

Thank you for all the LOVE on Dairy Free Betty’s 1st birthday!  I can’t believe I have already been blogging that long!!

So today, I’m sharing a recipe that is DELICIOUS… and perfect for a cool fall day!

“Almost as good as Nan's Pea Soup”

I was pretty excited when I made this and Dave said it was almost as good as his Nan’s, because she makes and AWESOME pea soup, that I know Dave craves sometimes…  but Newfoundland is a long ways to go for a bowl of soup!!

DSC_0501 It’s super easy, I tossed all the ingredients into a slow cooker and cooked it on high for just over 3 hours!  (or low for about 6)

1/2 onion - chopped

2 medium sized potatoes – chopped

5 cloves garlic – minced

1 stalk of celery (I chop it into 3 large pieces, so I can remove it before serving)

2 carrots – peeled and chopped

1 cup rinsed yellow peas (dried)

1 bay leaf

Salt and Pepper to taste.

Yup that’s it… toss it all in, cook it, and then use a potato masher and mash it together before serving… so yummy!

Hope you enjoy!!


And now I’ll leave you with a bunch of cute pictures!
