8 Minute Split Pea Soup

Tuesday, January 22, 2013

8 Minute Split Pea Soup

one pound of green split peas
one large chopped onion one pound carrots, sliced
One celery heart, sliced
bunch of kale
8 cups boiling water
4 teaspoons chopped parsley (dried, not fresh)
1-2 Tablespoons salt-free seasoning
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon basil
1 teaspoon rosemary
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon celery seed
1 teaspoon paprika
1 bay leaf

Place all ingredients in an electric Pressure Cooker. Cook on high for 6 minutes. Let pressure release naturally. Tastes even better the next day!

I don't measure anything so everything is a guess.

You can add any veggies, beans and grains that you want or have on hand.

The original recipe called for some sweet potatoes or white potatoes and I forgot.

    I made your recipe a few days ago. Awesome! I never thought to add kale to pea soup, and I'm always looking for ways to eat more of it. Thank you for sharing. This is a keeper!

  Glad to see you are enjoying the pressure cooker. With less water you can make a split pea hummus if you are into that .

    Oh that sounds sooooooo yummy. And perfect for cold weather like today.

I still don't have a pressure cooker, but I think this will work in the stove top. It just won't be as fast.
