Harry Potter Fans Know to Eat This Leaky Cauldron Pea Soup (Before It Eats Them)

“If you have the pea soup, make sure you eat it before it eats you.” Dre Head said that to Harry Potter on the Knight Bus in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban as Harry approached the Leaky Cauldron. Harry was probably wise to decline the murky pea soup after Cornelius Fudge offered it to him at the pub, but I’m 100 percent sure he’d approve of this version. Spooky enough to serve for Halloween thanks to its monster-like green color but comforting enough to serve on any Fall night, this hearty slow-cooker soup recipe will become one of your cold-weather favorites.

The soup is entirely vegan until you get to the garnish, which, if I’m being honest, is the best part by far. The crispy prosciutto chips add a textural contrast to the smooth soup, and their salty flavor really can’t be beat, but you could substitute crunchy roasted chickpeas if you prefer. Ready for a pea soup that’s definitely not your grandma’s and that would turn Harry into a Leaky Cauldron regular? Accio, slow cooker!
