Description

Vegan yellow split pea soup is a healthy, protein-packed, and frugal soup that is delicious and satisfying! It can also be made with green split peas or yellow lentils.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 cups chopped onions
  • 1 and 1/2 cups chopped carrots
  • 1/4 tsp freshly cracked black pepper
  • 1 and 1/3 cups dried yellow split peas, rinsed
  • 6 and 3/4 cups water, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt (plus more to taste)
  • Optional: 1/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf (Italian) parsley or dill, divided

Instructions

  1. In a large saucepan, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add onions, carrots and pepper; cook, stirring, for 6 to 8 minutes or until vegetables are softened.
  2. Stir in peas, 6 cups water and salt. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 35 to 40 minutes or until peas are very tender.
  3. Transfer 1 cup of the soup solids to food processor. Add remaining 3/4 cup water and process until smooth. Return purée to pan and stir in half the parsley or dill, if using. Simmer, stirring often, for 5 minutes to blend the flavors, thinning soup with water if too thick. Serve sprinkled with the remaining parsley or dill.

Notes

  • Tip: An equal amount of dried yellow lentils or green split peas may be used in place of the yellow split peas.
  • Storage Tip: Store the cooled soup in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days or in the freezer for up to 6 months. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator or in the microwave using the Defrost function. Warm soup in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat.
