Split Pea Soup (V) (GF)
This is one of my favorite recipes and I LOVE making this in the fall to warm my belly. I may have started the process early because I was craving it in August but we had a cool week here in Denver and really put me in the mood for warm soul food.
This recipe is very simple and I love to use my crock pot for this recipe. It makes life easy for me the more I can use my crockpot. I've tried every type of "healthy" vegan split pea soup - normally it comes it with ham - and this one is soooooo incredibly creamy and smooth AND contains NO dairy! How amazing is that?
You can really play with ingredients here and there are times when I've added sweet potatoes and others when I haven't. This was one time where I left them out and it was just as creamy and smooth! I use my base ingredients - carrots, split peas and vegetable stock. For flavor I just use garlic cloves, onion, some salt and pepper and a little sea salt. Super simple!
Ingredients: Makes about 6-8 servings
- 1 bag of 365 Split peas
- 4 cups of low sodium organic vegetable stock
- 1 cup water
- 1/2 chopped yellow onion
- 2 cloves garlic
- 4 medium/large organic carrots sliced
- 1 tsp black pepper
- 1 tsp sea salt
- Place all ingredients into crock pot and cook on low for 4-6 hours or until fully cooked. I brought it up to high for the last two hours to speed it up.
- Let cool and pour ingredients into blender and blend until smooth.
That's it! Super simple and SO delicious! I hope you enjoy!
