‘Soup’er Recipe: Split Pea and Potato Soup

posted in: 'Soup'er Recipes, Gluten Free | 7

Split pea and potato soup is another ‘soup’er delicious recipe and great way to get lots of veggies and fibre all cooked into a delicious soup.

  • 2 cups split peas
  • 4 or 5 stalks of sliced celery
  • 1/2 sweet onion, chopped
  • garlic to taste
  • 8 cups of water
  • 1 cubed medium sweet potato
  • 1 cubed medium white potato
  • salt and pepper to taste

For this recipe I used the celery and onion from the freezer. All ingredients are naturally gluten free.

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

Split peas come in green and yellow and it doesn’t matter what colour you use, they all taste delicious.

You can have this soup as is, blended half and half or smooth. The choice is yours. I like half in the blender and then mixed with the remainder for some texture.

I also love to eat soups the second day as they tend to thicken up and get more tasty. As is, it’s a great vegetarian soup but you can always add some chopped left over ham for the meat lover.

This soup freezes well and will taste really good on cold winter days.

I use glass jars from spaghetti sauce for storage in the fridge (easier to see what is inside, and they pop into the dishwasher) and use freezer bags laid flat for freezer storage.

    What a great looking vegan recipe. I can only imagine how good it tastes on a cold winter day. The sweet potato is an interesting addition.

      It is absolutely delicious. I need to make more as I ate the portions I already froze. Thanks for stopping by.

    Lovely post and you find interesting crafts to share. I make pea soup with the yellow split peas; now I want to make your version with potato added. I know it will be good! Still not frost here in the Ottawa valley but a promise of it coming soon.
