Simple and easy Vegan Split Pea Soup is so flavorful and hearty, perfect for cold nights but can be enjoyed all year. It is so economical, green split peas, carrots. potatoes, onion, garlic, cooked in vegetable broth.
Split pea soup is a staple that my family enjoys 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 have even made my Instant Pot Split Pea Soup version and Yellow Split Pea Patties With Curry Sauce recipe.
It is that time of year where it is not quite hot as yet and we are still having cold winterlike days. On these days, soups are my favorite go-to recipes. My Vegan Split Pea Soup is amazing, I make a big pot of soup so I have enough for leftovers.
No need to soak the split peas, for this recipe, you can use green or yellow split peas or even a combination of both. I used green split peas this time.
