how to make spilt pea soup vegan

Many traditional spilt pea soup recipes use ham hock which gives the soup a smoky flavor.

To keep this soup meat free, I like to use smoked paprika. The smoked paprika adds a really nice smoky element to the soup without having to add any meat!

The best part about this soup is that it’s an inexpensive meal that’s not only delicious, but also packed full of nutrition!

Vegan Spilt Pea Soup made right in the Instant Pot!

Spilt peas are probably one of the cheapest foods out there. Nutritious food doesn’t always have to break the bank.

what kind of pressure cooker to use

I love using my Viva 6 quart Instant Pot pressure cooker! Any pressure cooker will work though.

To make a really thick and cozy spilt pea soup, I like to add big chucks of potatoes to the soup.

Vegan Spilt Pea Soup is a super nutritious soup that is budget-friendly!

I just love the addition of potatoes.

Yes! The soup will last at least 3 days stored in an air-tight container in the fridge.

Spilt Pea Soup is an easy meal that the whole family will love!

The soup will thicken up a lot after it cools down. If it thickens up too much, no worries! This is compeltly normal.

how to reheat spilt pea soup

You can reheat the soup in a saucepan on the stove top or in the microwave. You’ll want to add a little water or vegetable broth to thin the soup.

Soup is a budget-friendly meal and easy to make! Perfect for the colder months.

what to serve with Instant Pot Spilt Pea soup

I love serving slices of warm bread with the soup. I love having some bread to dip into the soup. Yum!
