Skinny Gluten Free Split Pea and Kale Crock-Pot Recipe

Hi guys!   I've been growing Dinosaur Kale in the garden for months and I love it!!   The most amazing thing happened recently, hubby cut off the top and the bottom stalk started to grow leaves again!  So we are putting it in our soups, salads, frittatas and smoothies.  It has a nice mild flavor and blends in to everything really well. My pictures look a little dark and don't do this soup justice... sorry  :) 
 but the soup is awesome!  and the Crockpot keeps the house cool. It's in the 90's right now!

Only 112 calories per serving!  and so yummy with my Spectacular Bread in the Bread Machine!

  1. I like the use of the crock pot. It's too hot to bake!

    1. I love my crockpot!! I just picked up a pressure cooker today and can't wait to start experimenting with that as well. It must be hot in your corner of the world too :) just the thought of turning on the oven is enough to make me run out of the kitchen
