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!

Instant Pot for the Easiest Meal Prep Split Pea Soup Ever!

For all my recipes I use the 8-Quart Instant Pot Ultra, its larger than the standard models (which are only 6 quart) so I have extra room to meal prep and batch cook more meals for the week. The Ultra model also has some great extra settings like cake baking and yogurt making which are really neat. I love that everything can cook in one pot, which makes for way less dishes and hands-off cooking. The Instant Pot is hands-down my favorite kitchen appliance, and actually makes my life so much easier.

How Do I Make This Vegan Gluten Free Whole30 Split Pea Soup?

Instant Pot/Pressure Cooker Instructions

Add all ingredients to the Instant Pot, stir to combine. Cook on Manual for 15 minutes. When finished cooking allow the instant pot to naturally release for 20 minutes (do not manual release). After 20 minutes, manually release the steam carefully.  Soup is finished when potatoes fall apart slightly and peas become mushy.  Stir, taste, and adjust seasoning as needed.

Stove Top Instructions

Add all ingredients to a large stock pot. Stir and bring to a boil.  Cover with a lid, and reduce heat to a slow simmer.  Cook on low heat for about 45 minutes to 1 hour, stirring every 10 minutes or so to make sure peas don’t stick to the bottom of the pot and burn.  Stir, taste, and adjust seasoning as needed.

Slow Cooker Instructions

Add all ingredients to the Slow Cooker or Crock Pot, stir to combine. Cook On High fo 6 hours, or Low on 8 hours. Potatoes and peas should be cooked all the way through.  Stir, taste, and adjust seasoning as needed.
