I remember my mom making Pea Soup during my childhood. And I always thought, I will never make that! And isn’t life funny! Here I am making fabulous Pea Soup. My mom is so proud! On a chilly day, soup is the only way to go. Healthy, easy, and delicious. I’ve been a little obsessed with my slow cooker so of course this recipe was also cooked in the slow cooker! My favorite appliance besides my Vita-Mix. The Breville Risotto Cooker is hands down the best one out there! It does every from saute’ to slow cook to steam! You would think Breville hired me and I was getting paid or something but I’m not! Seriously best tool for 1 pot meals! Now go add that to your Holiday must have list!
