split pea soup nutrition


  1. Begin by rinsing the split peas and setting them aside.
  2. In a large pot over medium heat, heat the oil and sauté the chopped onion until it turns translucent.
  3. Add the garlic, smoked paprika, thyme, marjoram, and black pepper, and sauté for another two minutes.
  4. Now, add the split peas and vegetable stock to the pot. Turn up the heat to bring it to a boil, then reduce to low, cover with a lid, and let it simmer for about 60 min. You’ll know it’s ready when the peas are tender and starting to break apart.
  5. Next, add the potatoes and carrots to the soup. Bring it to a simmer once more and let it cook for about 10 min, or until the potatoes are tender.
  6. Season with salt to your liking, top with croutons, and enjoy!
