Instant Pot Vegan Split Pea Soup Recipe

Instant Pot Vegan Split Pea Soup Recipe

There is nothing like a warm bowl of Instant Pot Vegan Split Pea Soup Recipe for a cold winter's day with carrots, celery, potatoes, and a smoky Southern Flavor.

Instant Pot Vegan Split Pea Soup

FOR THE FULL LIST OF  INGREDIENTS, SCROLL TO SEE THE RECIPE CARD AT THE END. BUT BEFORE YOU SCROLL CHECK IMPORTANT INFORMATION THAT IS INCLUDED IN THE BLURB.

I never dreamt it would be so cold in Florida this time of the year, and all I can think of making is soups with my Instant Pot. If you haven't tried my Instant Pot Lentil Soup and my Instant Pot Rice and Peas, there are a must try, I have been getting great feedback on them.

If you don't have an Instant Pot, I have you covered check out my stovetop Split Pea Soup.

Instant Pot Vegan Split Pea Soup

The beauty of these Instant Pot Soups is that you don't have to use oil in the recipe, you just add all the ingredients and let the pot do its work and you don't have to be checking the pot to see if all is well. So for someone is wants to lose weight for the New Year then this soup is perfect,

It is high in fiber and hearty, you will feel very satisfied after you are finished. It gets thick after it cools so you may need to add extra vegetable broth when reheating it and you can also freeze extra for later.

This Split Pea soup is 1 weight watcher's point.

For a  smoky flavor, use smoked paprika, liquid smoke or  1 sliced gluten-free vegan Tofu Pups

    Well, that was tasty! My husband – who hates soup- loved this so much. The smokey flavor with the paprika and veggie hot dogs was outstanding! I didn’t add the nutritional yeast because I find it off putting, but other than that I followed it to a tee. Nice work.

    I loved this soup, so yummy. Not sure but mine was super thick I had to add several cups of broth to the end product.

      Tracey I’m happy you enjoyed it, split pea soup tend to thicken as it cools.

    hi there, looks delicious! Quick question, what are the Instant Pot parameters that we have use? High pressure? Manual to 15m?

    thanks!

    I just made this soup. The first thing I’ve made in my instant pot. I am amazed…and have lunch for several days. I have had the same container of split peas for almost a year and could not figure out what the heck to do with it. I cooked them several other ways and never really liked this. This recipe is going to be a staple in my arsenal. AMAZING!!!

      I am so happy you enjoyed it Joanna, I’m so happy you got to use your split peas and that you enjoyed my recipe. It usually tastes better the following day. Thank you for sharing your feedback.

    Delicious. I cut it in half and then used the immersion blender for a brief moment at the end. So simple. Oh, and I added just a 1/2 tsp of liquid smoke as well as the smoked paprika. :)

    Great recipe. I had to substitute a 1/8 tsp of ground ancho chili powder for the 1/4 smoked paprika, because I didn’t have any, otherwise I followed the recipe exactly. Great combination of flavors making a great bowl of split pea soup. Thanks for sharing.

    Going to try this recipe tonight, my first split pea instant pot adventure. I would like to add some canned white beans I have in the pantry. chard from the garden, and fresh herbs. Yellow split peas are awesome. Thanks for the great recipe!

    This is an awesome soup! It’s hearty and full of flavor. I have always loved split pea soup but it was always with ham (before I turned vegan), giving it that punch of smoky flavor. So the only alteration I made with your recipe was to add in 1 TB of Orrington Farms Vegan Ham Flavored Broth Base to the veggie broth. The house smells amazing with the smoky ham & pea soup aroma. Fantastic tasting soup! Thank you so much!

    • Michelle Blackwood
      October 17, 2018

      Thank you very much for your amazing comment. I have never heard of that vegan ham flavored broth base and it sounds amazing, I can imagine the scent. I bet my White Bean Soup recipe would taste amazing with that ham flavored broth base.

    I made this recipe for dinner tonight. Delicious! The cook time is not accurate though… 15 min prep, 10-15 min to come to pressure, 15 min cook, 0-20 min pressure release.

    I will definitely make this again. Immediate quick release resulted in really firm lentils, so next time I’ll wait five min.

    I made this last night and it turned out delicious! My boyfriend (who is in the service industry) said it was restaurant quality. I use the Better Than Boullion No Chicken Base for the broth. I’m eating it for lunch right now and it really thickens up over time. I’ll be making this again! Thanks :)

    • Michelle Blackwood

      That’s awesome Amber, thank you so much for your feedback. I’m so happy you both enjoyed it. Love that bouillon.

    I made this soup last week, and it came out great. I used homemade veg broth, which I think makes all the difference. Thank you for this worth-saving recipe!

    • Michelle Blackwood
      July 26, 2018

      Thank you Linda, I’m happy you enjoyed it. Yes homemade broth is the best because some of the store brands have messed up my dishes so I learned the hard way.

    I made this soup. It came out mushy even on 7 mins pressure time. Learned not to trust pressure times w/my instapot. Next time I’ll try 5 mins.

    I liked the soup after adding a touch of agave, salt, and smoked paprika to each bowl. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

    I just made this soup and really love its flavor! It was pretty thick so I used 4 cups low sodium veggie broth and 4 cups of water. I didn’t add any additional salt, but I did add generous dashes of black pepper and white pepper. I’ll be coming back to this one, and trying your other recipes, too! Thanks!

    Hi Michele, I don’t have the yeast on hand. Should I wait til I get it? Does it change the flavor much? I think not.

    • Michelle Blackwood
      June 12, 2018

      Elyse, you don’t need to wait. It will taste just as good without it.

        Terrific! I made half the recipe, which is so delicious maybe you should say it’s 6 servings. I substituted pearl barley for 1/8 of the split peas. No potatoes. Maybe ibshoukdchsve cooked it 5 or ten minutes longer. Anyway, we liked it. (And I don’t add salt to mine).

        • Michelle Blackwood
          June 17, 2018

          Elyse. I’m so happy you enjoyed it. Thank you, I’ll have to revisit this recipe and make adjustments.
