Weight Watcher Freestyle Split Pea Soup
I made this recipe last week and it was delicious. Hearty and satisfying this Freestyle soup comes to 0 points per serving. I made this in a crockpot but you could probably simmer it on the stove for a few hours as well.
1 bag (1 pound) of split peas rinsed.
1 medium onion diced
2-3 medium carrots peeled and chopped
2-3 medium celery stalks chopped
2-3 cloves of garlic minced
1 bay leaf
1/4 cup chopped parsley
4 cups of chicken or veg stock
3 cups of water
(optional) 2 tsp of liquid smoke
Put the split peas in the bottom of the crockpot - put the rest of the veggies on top, season with salt and pepper. Pour the liquids in and add the liquid smoke.
Set crockpot on low for 8-10 hours or high for about five hours.
Optional: Add one cup of diced ham for the last half an hour (this adds a point per cup).
Makes about 7-8 one cup servings.
If it's too thick add a little extra water.
