Prep Time: 20 min | Cook Time: 1 hour 15 min | Total Time: 1 hour 35 min | Servings: 4
- 2 cups dried green split peas
- 1 tbsp oil
- 1 onion, chopped
- 3 cloves garlic, chopped
- 1 tsp smoked paprika
- 1/2 tsp dried thyme
- 1/2 tsp marjoram
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
- 5 cups vegetable broth
- 2 medium potatoes, peeled and cubed
- 1 large carrot, chopped
- Salt, to taste
- Begin by rinsing the split peas and setting them aside.
- In a large pot over medium heat, heat the oil and sauté the chopped onion until it turns translucent.
- Add the garlic, smoked paprika, thyme, marjoram, and black pepper, and sauté for another two minutes.
- 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.
- 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.
- Season with salt to your liking, top with croutons, and enjoy!
