One-Pot French Canadian Split Pea Soup [Vegan, Gluten-Free]

This Recipe is :

Dairy Free Vegan






  • 1 1/2 cups dry yellow split peas
  • 1 cup dry red lentils
  • 1 large cooking onion, diced
  • 2 big carrots, diced
  • 3 celery sticks, chopped
  • 1 big sweet potato, peeled and diced
  • 1 big leek (with dark and tender greens), chopped
  • 2 ripe tomatoes with skins, diced
  • 2-3 garlic buds, pressed
  • 5 cups vegetable stock, preferably homemade
  • 10 cups of water (or more later)
  • 1 teaspoon dry Italian herbs
  • 1-2 bay leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon powdered curcuma
  • Sea salt and ground pepper, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • A good handful of fresh parsley leaves, chopped


  1. Put all ingredients, except the balsamic vinegar and parsley, in a big soup pot. Mix well.
  2. Bring to the boil and simmer with the lid on for 1 1/2 hours, stirring occasionally.
  3. Remove 5 cups of the soup (careful not to pick up the bay leaves) and pour this into the bowl of a blender or food processor.
  4. Process until smooth.
  5. Pour this back into the soup pot.
  6. Stir in the vinegar and parsley. Serve.


Store leftovers in a covered container in refrigerator or freezer. This soup thickens as the lentils and peas absorb more stock and water. Add more water according to taste.

Love this, can you please tell me what the red sprout garnish is? Red mustard?

HI, They are a mix of micro-greens but I can\'t say exactly which kind or if it was red mustard. It was all written in German when I bought them in a small box but they tasted so healthy and fresh, so I just added them into my soup serving before I took the picture. Lovely in a garden salad. Nice in soups. Julie
