  • 1 fresh bay leaf
  • 5 cloves garlic minced
  • 4 large carrots washed, peeled and sliced in 1/4 inch slices
  • 4 large stalks celery coarsely chopped
  • 1 med white onion chopped
  • 16 oz package split peas rinsed in fine colander
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 0.5 tsp ground coriander
  • 0.5 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 0.5 tsp sea salt to taste
  • 0.5 tsp ground black pepper to taste
  • 4 cups organic vegetable broth divided
  • 2-4 cups filtered water as needed as liquid dissipates during cooking
  1. In a  large wok over medium heat, add 1/4 cup vegetable broth and bay leaf. Simmer until the bay leaf releases a flavorful aroma, usually about 2-3 minutes. Add more vegetable broth as needed. 

  2. Add garlic and onion and cook until onion is translucent. Discard bay leaf. 

  3. Add cumin, coriander and cayenne pepper. Stir until well-blended. Add carrots and celery and cook for about 5 minutes until veggies start to soften. Don't overcook. 

  4. Add the rest of the veggie broth and split peas. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until veggies are fork-tender and split peas are kind of mushy. Add filtered water as needed when liquid starts to dissipate. When finished, this Vegan Split Pea Soup should be thick and creamy as you can see in the close up picture. Serve immediately with a loaf of warm baked bread or whole wheat crackers.
