Yellow Split Pea Soup

Submitted by: CAMILLE-LEON
Yellow Split Pea Soup

Introduction

Hearty split pea soup that is so easy to make. This is also one of the cheapest meals you can make, you can eat for practically pennies. This is vegetarian, and vegan, but even meat eaters will like it (my husband would say so). Only 78 calories!! If you are watching your sodium, choose Low Sodium Bouillon cubes. I buy my yellow split peas in bulk from whole/natural food stores. Wonderful autumn and winter soup. Hearty split pea soup that is so easy to make.

Ingredients

    2 cups dry yellow split peas, rinsed
    6-8 cups of water
    2 large carrots chopped
    1 onion chopped
    6 cloves garlic chopped
    2 Oxo Vegetable Cube or other Vegetable Bouillon Cube
    1/4 tsp Spike seasoning
    other herbs to taste (I use lemon pepper, celery salt, dried parsley, bay leaf)

Directions

Chop all the veggies. Boil the water and dissolve the vegetable bouillon in a large pot. Add all the veggies and split peas. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for at least 60 minutes. After about 45 minutes, I take a masher and smash the peas up a little bit to make a thicker soup. Stir occasionally checking for consistency. You may even have to add up to 10 cups of water depending on how thick or thin you like it. Season to taste.
Serves about 8* one cup servings

*I calculated calories at 8 servings. If you add more water and get more servings, it will be even less calories per serving.
