This recipe for vegan split pea soup is a staple that can be enjoyed all year round. You get to add lots of veggies with this comforting and hearty soup. When I’m stuck with what to prepare for dinner I love to make this recipe. I sometimes serve it with rice but today I decided to serve it with toasted Gluten Free Bread instead. Talk about comfort!

    Planning to make this soup this week. How many servings does this yield (trying to decide if I need to double the recipe for my family of 6)?

      You shouldn’t need to double this recipe. It is enough to serve about 8 people. Enjoy!

    Yes, I feel summer is gone for good now, so it’s probably time to get some awesome comfy soups on the stove again. This one definitely looks pretty good!! :D

    After the week I’ve had, soup is definitely what I need. This sounds like the perfect soup for bundling up on the couch. Love that I almost have all the ingredients on hand to make it, too!

    This looks so good, Michelle! I just love split pea soup! I see that you’re from Ohio (I am, too – Akron!). My mom still lives there, and she had the heat on today! Ugh! Your soup would be the perfect solution :)
