Week 8: Desperation Winter Soup

Category Vegetable
This week's soup can be customized based on what is in your pantry, produce drawer and freezer. Pretty much any combination of vegetables and spices can be used for this basic but hearty crockpot soup. Great for these last few weeks of winter.

I was desperate, nothing for dinner, super busy day. So I hunted through my pantry and fridge to see what I could throw into the crockpot on high and hope it cranked out something good. To my great delight, the house began to smell wonderful. When I ladled the contents into my families bowls, all I heard was mmmm and yum.

Among other things, this desperate but successful winter soup has sweet potatoes and split peas. Lots of savory herbs, I am definitely making this again!

Total Time: About 20 minutes prep

Yield: About 10 servings

Source: Self

Ingredients:

  • 5 sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 1 large yellow onion, diced
  • 2 cups dry split peas
  • 4 carrots, peeled and coined
  • 2 celery ribs, sliced
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp sage
  • 1/2 tsp coriander
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 1 tsp dried parsley
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme leaves
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 13 cups chicken broth (I make mine using bullion cubes - 1 cube dissolved in 1 cup boiling water = 1 cup broth)

Steps:

  1. Place all of your ingredients into your crockpot. Mix well.

  3. Turn setting to high. I checked mine exactly 3 hours and 46 minutes after turning it on. It probably would have been ready to eat after 3 hours on high. If you want to cook this on low, I would cook it for 6-8 hours.
