Ingredients You Need for Split Pea Soup [Vegan]

  • 1 cup dried green split peas, rinsed
  • 1 small russet potato, peeled and chopped
  • 1/2 cup diced yellow onion
  • 1/2 cup diced carrot
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 5 cups water
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped parsley

How to Prepare Split Pea Soup [Vegan]

  1. Place the split peas in a strainer and rinse with water. Place the strainer over a bowl and set aside for now, allowing the excess water drain out.
  2. Heat a large pot over medium heat for about two minutes. Add the potato, onion, carrot and celery and saute for 5 minutes, stirring frequently and adding a splash of water when the veggies start to stick to the pot.
  3. Add the split peas, garlic, smoked paprika, salt, pepper and water and stir. Bring to a boil and then turn down the heat to medium-low and place a lid on the pot at an angle. Simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. After 30 minutes, turn off the heat, take the lid off and allow the soup to cool for about 15 minutes, occasionally stirring to help it cool faster. After it has cooled, blend the Soup in batches with your blender (or all in one go with a blender stick) until creamy and smooth. Our the soup back into the pot and stir in the parsley.
  5. Let it cool completely before storing in the fridge.
