Super Split Pea Soup

A delicious warming soup!


1 cup split peas 6 cups homemade vegetable stock

1 teaspoon coconut oil

1 large onion minced

1 ½ cups peeled and chopped sweet potato

1 tsp dried tarragon, crushed

2 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro

½ tsp ground cumin Cayenne pepper to taste

Fresh cilantro sprigs to garnish


  • Soak split peas for 6 to 8 hours in enough fresh water to cover them completely. Drain, place in a large pot and cover with vegetable broth. Bring to a slow boil and cook for 30 minutes.

  • In a separate frying pan melt coconut oil and sauté the minced onions until they are soft.

  • Once split peas are cooked, add the sweet potato, tomatoes, herbs and spices. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until the sweet potatoes become tender (about 20 minutes).

  • Garnish with cilantro before serving.

Nothing like a nice big pot of simmering soup on the stove!
