Slow Cooker Ham and Pea Soup

by Skinny Ms.

Slow Cooker Ham and Pea Soup

Fall is an incredible time of year.  The changing colors, the brisk weather, cider and pumpkin desserts, the return of soups and stews, apple  pie, and the list could go on and on. The foods associated with each season can match your mood so perfectly.  As soon as you start pulling out sweaters and scarves, you know it is time for hearty soup recipes, spiced cider, and warm apple desserts.

A favorite fall and winter recipe is Slow Cooker Ham and Pea Soup.  This soup is thick, hearty, and healthy! In other words, it’s the perfect meal for a chilly evening. Instead of a smooth green purée, we like to leave Ham and Pea Soup with big hearty chunks of ham and carrots.

This healthy soup recipe is definitely one you want to pull out each year!
