This Split Pea Soup with Sweet Potatoes Is:

  • Thick
  • Savory
  • Healthy
  • Vegan
  • Gluten Free
  • Cooked in the Instant Pot, Pressure Cooker, or Stove top

In my Classic Vegan Split Pea Soup I use white potatoes and barley – but I decided to try sweet potatoes instead in this version.  And let me tell you, it turned out AMAZING!  The sweet potatoes give the soup a delicious texture and really brighten the flavor.  Plus the sweet potatoes provide a little extra nutrients to the soup, which is always a good thing!

I love love love sweet potatoes, and always have a few on hand as they can be thrown into any meal. They make a great breakfast when chopped in my Breakfast Sheetpan Eggs & Vegetables.  They make a great lunch or dinner in Easy Vegan Sheetpan Fajitas.  And sweet potatoes for DESSERT?  You bet with my Fudgy Sweet Potato Brownies!

The recipe below is for the instant pot, but this can easily be made on the stove top or in the slow cooker instead!
