Here’s what I did.

I used these ingredients plus a one-pound bag of split peas for this recipe.

Place a package of dried split peas in a bowl and fill with water to make sure peas are completely submerged. Soak for at least 2 hours. Soaking legumes and grains releases phytates which are harmful, and also being an enzyme process to help make them more easily digestible. I highly recommend you soak all whole grains, (wheat, rice, corn, etc.) and legumes before cooking.

After beans are finished soaking prepare the rest of the soup. Chop up onions and celery, slice carrots, leeks and cube potatoes. Mince garlic. Put all the veggies into a large stockpot.

Add vegetable broth.

Bring soup ingredients to a boil and cook for 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook at least an hour to an hour and a half – until the vegetables are fork tender and split peas have cooked.

    Like your friend, I have multiple issues with foods, and have to be ultra careful what I eat. I’ve only realized in the last five months that many previously “safe” foods have become dangerous for me, creating health issues that take me down for days at a time. To find your recipe is a blessing because I really like my legumes, and I especially like split pea soups, both green and yellow. I’ll have to leave the liquid smoke out because of the severe allergies I have, but with so many other wonderful spices and additions that you have in your recipe, I’m sure this must be just what I’m looking for 🙂

    Seemed to be lacking something. So I left it on the warmer and threw in a ham hock. I’ll see if this helps my palate.

      Hi, Ginger. We thought it was really tasty for a vegan soup. I had plenty of pepper in mine. I also have a regular split pea soup with ham on my blog that you might prefer.

    Made this split pea soup (vegan style) according to the recipe exactly as written. It is super delicious!!

The recipe does make a lot of soup but we will eat it up with no problem!! Thanks for a great recipe!!
