This soup might not be very pretty much oh my goodness is it delicious! The bacon-ham flavor really shines in this dish, supported by the creaminess from the peas and subtle notes from the carrots and onion. I was surprised at how much I really liked it and wished that I had made a double batch! The peas provide more texture than flavor so even if you're not a huge fan of green peas, I would recommend giving this rich, warming soup a try!
With the unusual green color of the soup, it would be fun to name it Green Monster Soup or The Hulk Soup or something similar for the kiddos.
Another part of this I loved was how easy it was to prepare! Chopping the vegetables takes the most time and then you just pop everything in the slow cooker. Easy 'peas'y. (Haha I crack myself up).
