Split Pea Soup (Vegan) Print 0 LikeDislike By Maria Koutsogiannis I just find soup one of the most comforting meals. However, not all soup is equal. For me, in order for a soup to really fill me up and serve as a full meal that keeps me full for longer than an hour or two, I need to make sure it’s loaded with plant-based proteins to keep me going. That’s why I love this Vegan Split Pea Soup because it’s just that. Super filling, healthy, easy, and delicious!You’ll love this Split Pea Soup because:It’s easy to make and only takes 45 minutes to pull togetherIt’s hearty and fillingIt can be made with ingredients you likely already have in your pantryIt’s budget-friendlyDid I mention it’s damn delicious?Traditionally Split Pea Soup is not vegan as it has ham in it. For this recipe, I used a vegan ham substitute instead. There are several brands that make plant-based hams, ranging from deli slices to full-on roasts. For this recipe, I used Yves who make their ham products from tofu, but any brand will work. Usually, vegan ham is made with spices like liquid smoke to help give you that flavor you would normally get in a soup like this from meat products. Adding the smoked tofu in this recipe also really allows you to get that authentic flavor in this soup.This soup recipe is perfect if you’re on a budget, if you want to meal prep for the week, want to put together a healthy meal but have limited ingredients on hand, the list goes on. I think it’s so dang delicious and can’t wait for you to try it!
