Vegan Split Pea Soup

Simple and easy Vegan Split Pea Soup is so flavorful and hearty, perfect for cold nights but can be enjoyed all year. It is so economical, green split peas, carrots. potatoes, onion, garlic, cooked in vegetable broth.

The only thing you want on dead cold days is a warm and snuggly blanket and a bowl of comforting, hearty, and warm soup. You might find hundreds of different soup recipes, but this vegan split pea soup is not an easy one to beat. I have three words for this soup. It is “heart-warming,” “comforting,” and “fulfilling.”

Split pea soup is a staple that my family enjoys all year round. You get to add lots of veggies with this comforting and hearty soup. When I’m stuck with what to prepare for dinner I love to make this recipe. I have even made my Instant Pot Split Pea Soup version and Yellow Split Pea Patties With Curry Sauce recipe.
