I love my slow cooker as I can dump stuff in, walk away, and come back to a meal.

This is my super-easy Split Pea Soup recipe

Water 6-8 c.
Dried split peas (yellow, green or a mix)1 c.
Sugar 1.5 tsp
Cornstarch 1 tsp
Celery Seeds 1/2 tsp
Dried onion 1 tsp
Pepper 1/4 tsp
Salt 1-1.5 tsp to taste

Add to slow cooker. Cook on low all day or high for ~4 hours until peas are soft.

Accessibility thoughts:
You need to be able to manage a slow cooker and those suckers are heavy.
Those peas are slippery so if one or two manage to get away from you (and they always do with me), and you don't have fine-motor control, you may not be able to pick them up.

Variations:
Depending on energy and ability to chop, you can substitute a chopped onion for the dried onion. I have some soup on right now and didn't have any cornstarch so I cut up about 2 cups of potatoes to help thicken it up. ETA: The potatoes were fantastic! They did make the soup more potato-y than split pea-y so if you add potatoes, you may want to add another 1/2 c. of dried split peas to balance it back out./ETA
You can blend it with an immersion blender if you want; although I never do.
