Polly’s Vegetable Patch Crock-Pot Soup



2 cups Split Peas

1 cup long grain brown rice

2 cups finely chopped carrots

One 24 ounce bottle of
Ragu Onion, Garlic and Herbs Marinara Sauce

1/2 teaspoon garlic paste

8 cups water

1 tablespoon either low sodium chicken base or low sodium vegetarian base

Mix all ingredients and put in a crock pot for about 4 hours, until the split peas are tender and the rice is cooked. On my crockpot I had it set at 300 and it was 6 hours later and it still needed more time. I jacked it up to 350 and it cooks within a fairly short time. Just monitor it because the cooking time is going to vary depending on what kind of vegetables you use.

Feel free to add in whatever kind of veggies you like and what’s in season. You could add more variety, just make sure your crock pot slow cooker has the capacity to hold it all!
