Scrumptious Split Pea Soup with Veggies


Scrumptious Split Pea Soup with Veggies

Prep/Cooking time: 1.5 hr

In a large pot combine:

2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil*

1 onion, diced

4 carrots, peeled and sliced

1 sweet potato, peeled and chopped

2 cloves garlic, chopped

2 tsp grated ginger

Heat over medium heat for 10 minutes

Add:

1 lb green split peas

4 cups vegetable broth

4 cups water

1 tsp black pepper

1 tsp thyme

1 tsp sea salt

1.5 tsp rosemary

1.5 tsp turmeric

Bring to a boil, lower heat and simmer covered 1 hour.

Puree with an immersion blender (I like to leave a few chunks for texture). This makes a fairly thick soup. Add more water or broth to desired thickness.

Makes about 7 – 1/5 cup servings.

*Note that extra virgin olive oil should not be heated above medium heat on the stove top. For higher temperatures, use a high heat oil such as expeller pressed canola oil or coconut oil.
