Here is a new to us recipe that we tried last week if you're interested in this plant based recipe.

Chef AJ's Sweet Potato and Yellow Split Pea Soup


One pound of yellow split peas
One large chopped onion 
One pound carrots, sliced
One celery heart, sliced (mirepoix)
2 Large Sweet potatoes , cubed
8 cups boiling water
6-8 cloves garlic, pressed
4 teaspoons chopped parsley (dried, not fresh)
1-2 Tablespoons salt-free seasoning
1 teaspoon basil
1 teaspoon rosemary
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon celery seed
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1 bay leaf
1 capful Wright’s Liquid Smoke, optional (stirred in after cooking is completed)


Place all ingredients in an electric pressure cooker and cook on high pressure or 8 minutes.

Release pressure. 

Alternatively, place all ingredients in a crock pot and cook on low for 6-8 hours

  1. Sounds like this would be a wonderfully filling winter soup. Now if I can just find some dried yellow peas. They seem to be missing from store shelves here.

    God bless.

    1. Oh no, Jackie. I hope you can find some soon. I have a bag from before the pandemic started, which I've been using, but it is about gone and will need replacing soon. I hope I'll be able to find some.

  2. My dad loved yellow split peas as that is what they grew in Sweden. We only get the green ones here but they are free so hey I am all in.

  3. I made a huge pot of 15 bean soup over the weekend. I’ll be adding rice to go with it tonight. Lol your recipe sounds delicious!
