Souper Easy Split Pea Soup

Split Pea Soup PinThis Souper Easy Split Pea Soup recipe comes to us from Kristie Middleton, Senior Director of Food Policy for the Humane Society of the United States. She’s also the author of the widely popular book, “MeatLess: Transform the Way You Eat and Live – One Meal at a Time.”

Amelia and I had the pleasure of meeting Kristie at a Humane League Gala here in Denver, and also at her book signing at the Tattered Cover. Her mission in life and with the Humane Society is to help people transition to a “meatless” diet.

With tons of recipes like this Split Pea Soup in her book, she’s doing a great job of showing people how to eat a more humane diet without sacrificing any of the flavor they’re used to with more traditional, less humane ingredients.

We didn’t have Herbs de Provence so Amelia improvised by using a dash of dried oregano, basil, parsley and rosemary. Delicious!

Instructions
  1. In a large pot over medium-high heat, add 1/4 cup of stock or broth and onion. Steam fry the onion until translucent, about 3 minutes. Add the garlic and steam for another 2 minutes.
  2. Add remaining ingredients and bring mixture to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and stir periodically. The soup may foam, which is normal when cooking split peas. Stir and lower heat slightly if this happens. Continue simmering until peas are tender, about 90 minutes.
  3. Remove bay leaf and serve as is or blend the soup with an immersion blender or in a blender until smooth. You may need to add more liquid if it's too thick.
  4. Garnish each serving with parsley, croutons or grated carrots if desired.
