Vegan Split Pea Soup

Vegan split pea soup

My Vegan Split Pea Soup is a quick and easy one to throw together. I had made some vegetable stock and needed to use it up, so I grabbed the remaining half of a package of  split peas that I had and I always have celery, carrots, onions and garlic so hello pantry friendly soup! I absolutely love when I can make something out of nothing – or at least without another trip to the market!

So many traditional split pea soups call for ham or bacon to imbibe the soup with flavor. However, this soup is a simple preparation and lightly spiced with cumin and smoked paprika to give it its smoky, subtle flavor. Another seasoning I like to use in soups is Bragg Liquid Aminos. It is an alternative to soy sauce with a unique savory umami flavor but the two can be used interchangeably. Both add salt to the recipe so you will not need much additional salt.
