Here’s another one that may be better the next day! I tend to cook in a hurry, so four hours in the slow-cooker on High may not be ideal for this recipe. Cooking something else to accompany this is recommended, and it’s actually what I did…luckily (pork chops) or just plan better!
After chopping, everything in the pot.
I stirred it every few hours to check on its progress. Not needed.
This is after eight hours on Low. It doesn’t look like much, in my opinion, but it was very flavorful and filling.
It’s also very chunky since I don’t have a food-processor or blender, and I can’t use my Bullet to smooth it out, so this was it!
This was the leftovers! The peas are more broken down into a paste and a less watery base. It was impressively easy in the end.
