One of my favorites: Vegetarian Split Pea Soup

This recipe is actually vegan (no milk or animal products).  I was surprised at how deliciously creamy it was.  I tweaked the recipe by using sweet potatoes instead of white potatoes for a slightly healthier, vitamin-packed soup.

I found this recipe while searching for soy-free vegetarian meals.

You may not know it but approx 91% of all soy grown in the US is "Genetically Mutated" (GMOs) and I am against GE foods.

Vegetarian Split Pea Soup
Meatless on Monday #31
adapted from food.com

3 cups dried split peas
7 cups water *I used water*

OR 7 cups vegetable stock (may need more)
1 bay leaf 

1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon sea salt 

2 cups onions, minced 
2 medium garlic cloves, minced
3 stalks celery, minced
1 sweet potato, diced
fresh ground black pepper 

Optional: grated Parmesan cheese


Add all ingredients to a stock pot and bring to a boil then turn down to low.

Simmer for approx 60 minutes.  
Optional: mash remaining pieces of sweet potato. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. 
(use vegan cheese for a completely vegan recipe)



  1. Sounds really delicious. I will not touch any soy - don't trust it!

  2. We are done with soy here too. Are there GMO-free soya sauces out there. We've been going without but it's one of my guilty pleasures.
