Vegan Split Pea Soup

Vegan Split Pea Soup - A simple, hearty and complete meal!

Vegan split pea soup is simple, hearty and so flavorful.  

I received high praises from both my vegetarian daughter and my carnivore husband for this meal.

My husband and I really enjoy split pea and ham hock soup. But, he said, “Babe, this soup is really, REALLY good”.

It’s always a home run for me when I can please everyone with one meal.

This soup is so easy. No dairy products, no chicken stock, gluten-free, just healthy eating at it’s best!

Add olive oil to a large pot or dutch oven over medium heat. Add onions and sauté until the onions are starting to soften about 10 minutes.

Add the bay leaf, garlic and thyme saute for 1 minute.

Add the carrots, celery, potatoes, split peas, salt, pepper, and vegetable broth.

Bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce the heat down and simmer uncovered for 45 – 55 minutes, stirring occasionally until peas are soft.

Remove bay leaf. Use an immersion blender to puree some of the soup, leave some chunks. Or place 2 cups of soup in a blender. Puree and return to pot.

Soup will thicken as it cools.

I love most all soups but I, like my husband, enjoy meat.  We did not miss the ham in this split pea soup one bit.
