  1. In a large skillet, heat olive oil. Once heated, add onion in and saute until they become translucent and start to brown/carmelize.
  2. Add garlic, celery, and carrot into the skillet, and saute for about 5 minute or until the veg starts to become soft.
  3. Rinse split peas, and add into a large crockpot. Add in ALL other ingredients, and stir well. Cook on high for 5-5.5 hours, or until the peas fall apart and creates a beautiful thick and creamy soup.
  4. Turn crockpot to warm, and cool off a bit before serving. Enjoy!

One of my favorite soups is the famous Split Pea Andersen’s legendary split pea soup. On my quest of veganizing- I am EXTREMELY satisfied with this amazing, cream, flavorful warm your soul soup 🙂

*Note, if you prefer less salty items, feel free to decrease the amount of salt listed.

*If soup is too thick to your liking, just add more water.
