  • Dutch Oven or 4 Quart Soup Pot


Vegan Split Pea Soup


For the Split Pea Soup

  • Heat oil in a dutch oven over medium heat. Add chopped onion and 1 teaspoon of sea salt. Saute the onions until they're translucent (5 minutes). Next, add the garlic. Stir for one minute. Then add the celery, carrots, bay leaf and oregano. Saute, stiring occasionally for 10 minutes.
  • Add the split peas, water and another teaspoon of sea salt. Bring to a boil and let simmer for 45 minutes with the lid slightly ajar. During the last five minutes of cooking, stir in the parsley.
  • Once the split peas are fully cooked, turn off the heat. Transfer 2 cups of the soup to a high speed blender. Emulsify and add the pureed soup back into the pot. Stir in apple cider vinegar and season with pepper.


  • How to Store and Reheat Split Pea Soup
  • Fridge: This soup can be kept in the refrigerator for up to five days in an air tight container.
  • Freeze: You can freeze vegan split pea soup for up to 3 months. Just store in a freezer safe container and leave 1 or two inches of room at the top for expansion.
  • Reheat - Reheat the soup on the stove top. Run frozen soup under hot water. Pop the soup out of the Tupperware and into a pan. Heat on medium low, stir often. In the microwave heat the soup up at 1 minute intervals. Stir in between minutes until your desired temperature is reached.
