I love a good soup on a chilly fall or winter day, and this soup is a fantastic way to get some extra vegetables in your diet. And what better way to enjoy a healthy lunch than with a piping hot bowl of soup?
In my Classic Vegan Split Pea Soup recipe 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 great! 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!

- Low Sodium Vegetable Stock – I like to use this low sodium vegetable stock for my recipes because it has great flavor… without all the salt. I always use low sodium or no-salt-added broth or stock to start, and then I can add salt or other spices later if needed. Check out more low sodium recipes here!

- Herbs de Provence: THE secret ingredient in this soup! Herbs de Provence is a really nice French blend of thyme, marjoram, savory, and lavender. The Herbs de Provence makes this soup out of this world good, and really wonderful flavored… I always keep a very large jar or Herbs de Provence in my pantry!
- Bay Leaves: the other secret ingredient to this dish, the bay leaves are essential for a wonderful savory flavor when the soup cooks, it gives the pea soup it’s signature taste.
- Salt and Pepper to taste
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.

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.
