1Brown bacon in a pan then place in slow cooker.
2Add olive oil, potatoes, carrots, onion, spring onion, garlic, potatoes (both normal and sweet), spices and split peas to the slow cooker.
3Top with liquid vegetable stock and then add 2-4 cups of water depending on the size of your slow cooker. (I needed 2.5 cups).
4Add one tablespoon of tomato paste and stir through.
5Cook on high for 3 hours until soup starts to thicken up, then place slow cooker on low for another 1-2 depending desired consistency. Stir frequently to mix the peas.
6Lots of flavour, lovely served with Garlic bread and Parmesan Cheese.
