Hearty Vegan Split Pea Soup


  • 8 cups water
  • 2 cups dried split peas, rinsed and checked for any stones or unsavory characters
  • 1 sweet onion
  • 1/2 bag of baby carrots
  • Sea Salt and freshly ground pepper


  • Fill a Dutch Oven or heavy pot with 8 cups of water. Pour in 2 cups of dried split peas. Turn the heat to high and let come to a boil. Once it starts to boil, turn down to simmer and skim the top of all white foam. Turn to simmer at this point
  • Let cook until peas begin to soften, are tender and soup is beginning to thicken
  • Let simmer for an hour or more, then add the onions, carrots, sea salt and pepper. Continue cooking on simmer until onions and carrots are done about another hour or thereabouts. The soup will thicken as it sits. If it gets too thick, just add water to thin
