    My husband never eats a pea when they are served at dinner! However, when he came home from work & smelled the crockpot soup, he had one cup and then another. I was amazed. This was great. I used 6 cups organic chicken broth + 1 cup water.. will omit the water next time to be a little thicker :) - 8/11/12

    O.M.G. This was so amazing! I added one medium diced sweet red onion and omitted black pepper. Perfect. Will definitely be making this again and again. Delicious and so very easy. Thanks for sharing your recipe! - 5/12/10

    Using the slow cooker on low will work perfectly! I have left it on low all day - love having dinner ready to come home to!

    This turned out great! This recipe tastes almost identical to the way I usually make split pea soup with a ham bone, but I am sure it is much healthier. Thanks for sharing! - 12/20/09

    Very easy to make! I cooked it on low for 7 1/2 hours and used regular bacon. Everyone had seconds. Next time, I will add potatoes. Talk about a cheap and tasty meal! - 10/16/10

    It tasted great. I actually used the chicken broth and cooked it on the stove with low heat. My husband said it was the best he has ever had. - 10/3/13

    Made this in the slow cooker. It turned out very thick, so I may add a bit more water next time. Other than that, it was great. A good basic recipe. - 1/10/12

    I was skeptical about the turkey bacon but was pleasantly suprised. My husband and I LOVE this soup! It's so incredibly easy to throw together before I go to work, and I've left it on low for up to 12 hours without problems. It seems a bit runny the night it's made so we wait to eat it reheated. - 11/14/10
