Easy Split Pea Soup

Recipe: Easy Split Pea Soup

Summary: An easy non-fat split pea soup.

Prep time: 30 minutes

Cook time: 5 hours



  • 1 bag – 3 1/4 cups dried split peas
  • 6-8 cups water
  • 1 cup celery, diced
  • 2 medium onions, diced
  • 5 oz of shredded carrots
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • salt, to taste
  • pepper, to taste


  • Add water and split peas in large stockpot and cook on low, stirring often.
  • Combine celery, onions, and carrots in a steamer and steam until tender.
  • Cook the split peas until they are completely soft 4-5 hours.
  • When peas are almost tender, add the steamed vegetables, garlic powder, salt and pepper and mix.
  • Continue cooking on low until soup becomes more pureed.  Serve immediately.

Quick notes

Add water as needed. If you prefer a soupier split pea soup, you’ll want to add more water. If you want a thicker, more pureed soup, you may not need to add more water. It may take a couple of times to get soup the consistency you like.


Add other kinds of seasoning as desired.
