‘Soup’er Recipe: SP Soup

I’m calling this soup the SP soup as it is made from split peas and sweet potatoes. There is probably a recipe out there that you can search but I used one of my other recipes and added all sweet potatoes.

  • 2 cups split peas
  • diced celery
  • 1/2 sweet onion, chopped
  • garlic to taste
  • 8 cups ofwater
  • 2 cubed medium sweet potatoes
  • salt and pepper to taste

*** Hint: Waste not want not.

I frequently save the liquid from cooking veggies and potatoes to use as stock for my soups. I also poach chicken in water and save the liquid to use as a base for my chicken soups.

For this recipe I used the celery and onion from the freezer.

There is nothing better on a cold day than to have the aroma of home cooked soup filling the kitchen.

  • wash and drain the split peas
  • add split peas, celery, onion, potato, garlic and veggie broth to a big pot
  • boil and then simmer for about 2 hours, till veggies are soft

If it gets too thick you can always add some more water.

You can eat as it is, or you can add all or some of it to the blender to make a smoother consistency.

I love to eat soups the second day as they tend to thicken up and get more tasty. I made some for the fridge and some for the freezer.

    It looks like a perfect combination and great for the colder weather people are having. Thanks for sharing your soup with Souper Sundays at Kahakai Kitchen this week.

      Hi Debra, thanks for stopping by. I love sweet potatoes and add it to many of my soups, and it is a great way to get extra fibre. Have a ‘soup’er day.
