Preparation Time: 10 minutes

This is one of our favorite fall soups and so comforting when the chilly winds blow in. Delicious with a side salad. Yum!

  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, pressed
  • 1/8 - 1/4 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • 1 teaspoon sage
  • 1 tablespoon parsley
  • 1 1/2 cups dry split peas
  • 6 cups of water or vegetable broth
  • 2 carrots, diced
  • inner parts and leaves of 2 heads of celery, minced
  • optional: leftover baked potato, diced
  • 1 teaspoon smoked sea salt

Heat coconut oil in large pot over medium heat. Sauté the onion in the oil until it becomes soft. Add the garlic, stirring constantly being careful it doesn't burn. Add cayenne, thyme, sage and parsley. Stir in split peas and water. Bring to a boil.

Cover, reduce heat, allow to simmer for 20 minutes. Add carrots and celery and cook until peas are soft 20 - 30 minutes more. Add the potato and heat through. The peas will thicken soup as they cook and you can add additional spices, as you like. Add the salt to taste.

Hi there,
I tried this recipe out with some split peas I was saying good-bye to, since I'm going raw, and it wasn't what I had hoped for. I don't know if it was the split peas I bought being a different supplier from previous ones I've cooked, but their texture was hard and somewhat gritty. The split pea soup I remember *loving* was very creamy and soft textured. Is that how it is supposed to turn out? Or is it normal for the peas not to soften? I cooked for a long time.. maybe it's the temperature I cooked them at, (which was higher as I got more impatient). While following your recipe very closely I also added 2 spoonfuls of dried vegetables, 1 large tomato (chopped) along with an additional 1/4 tsp. cayenne and some himalayan salt to taste! (No baked potatoes). I didn't much enjoy eating this at all, it made me feel crummy afterwards. That's what cooked foods will do to ya!
