Vegan Split Pea Soup

Vegan Split Pea Soup

Vegan split pea soup is comforting, filling, delicious, and so good for you. Best of all it’s really easy to make. The secret ingredient in this soup is a turnip, placed in the pot whole. I don’t even bother peeling it, just give it a wash and plunk it in the pot. The purpose of the turnip is to infuse the soup with a lovely delicate flavour and subtle sweetness. Then just pull the turnip out with a pair of tongs after the vegan split pea soup is cooked. The result is so delicious. 

Vegan Split Pea Soup Recipe


2 cups of rinsed green split peas 
8 cups of water 
1 1/2cups chopped onion
1 1/2 cups chopped carrot
1 turnip 
1/4 cup chopped fresh dill 
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper 


Add the split peas, carrots, onions, water, salt, and pepper to a large stock pot. Add the whole turnip to the pot (don’t chop it!). Let the soup cook uncovered on medium heat for two hours or until thickened, then remove the whole turnip with tongs and discard. Serve hot. Makes approximately 6-8 portions of vegan split pea soup.
