There is nothing like throwing a bunch of ingredients in the crockpot, noticing a very nice smell a few hours later, and realizing it’s your dinner. I’ve made a meaty split pea soup before, but this time I used a recipe from Real Food Has Curves, and left out the ham to make it vegetarian.

There are a few ingredients that really make this soup great, like the freshly chopped sage. Sage always reminds me of my grandmother’s turkey stuffing, and I assure you that’s a very good thing. For the broth, I used Knorr Vegetable Bouillon and white wine, a winning combination.

The split peas retained more of their texture in the original version of this soup, but I let mine cook just a little too long, and the peas fell apart. It didn’t really matter to me though, I loved this meal. The vegetables were not overshadowed by a sometimes salty ham bone, and the fresh herbs supplied plenty of flavor. Go ahead, throw this in your crockpot this weekend and you won’t be disappointed.
