Vegan Split Pea Soup - Extra Creamy Edition! (GF)
I’ve probably made this soup 100 times over the course of me creating and experimenting with recipes and every single time I love it more! I posted a recipe on this blog a while back that is a bit more simple - less ingredients but since then I’ve modified it and really love this version! Depending on what you have in your kitchen you can try this one or the other, or both!
I’m not exactly what inspired me to change it but that’s what I like to do, change it up it time because I get bored! IT may be adding just a simple ingredient, taking something out or maybe just changing the texture. Its so fun to play around with food. After all, it is something we consumer all day, everyday so why not make it fun?
Eating healthy doens’t have to be boring, or hard, or expensive, or time-consuming. All of these are excuses and frankly not something that I resonate with because health is my priority and what I put into my body is of the greatest importance so I don’t mess around with it!
So, let me help you get into this mindset by just starting to test your palette with some easy recipes that require little prep and are delicious and filling. Sound good?
Let’s start with this recipe. Super easy. Just throw everything into your crock pot and let cook. Done. That’s it. If you want to make it smooth you can blend it, or skip it if its too much. It tastes great either way!
16 oz bag Organic Split Peas - I used Whole Foods 365
8 cups water
1 tbsp organic white miso paste - I use Miso Master
1/2 tsp sea salt
3 peeled organic rainbow carrots
1/2 cooked sweet potato
1 cup almond milk
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 chopped onion
2 garlic cloves
Turn on your crock pot to Low heat. Add in 8 cups water, salt & miso paste.
Put a sweet potato in the micro for 5-6 minutes and cut in half. Peel the carrots, chop the onion and garlic and add them in to your mixture
Cook on Low for 6-8 hours
Blend in a vitamix with almond milk or water to thin out the mixture as it thickens when the peas are blended. If you are using a blender let the soup cool a bit before adding to the blender. The Vitamix is made to handle very hot temperatures but a food processor isn’t necessarily so make sure to check first.
After you blend. Serve and enjoy!
I hope you enjoy! I’d love to hear your feedback on the recipe! If you would comment below if you have tried it or feel free to TAG me on social media! I’d love to hear from you!
