Antoinette's Vegetarian Split Pea Soup
2 tablespoons coconut oil or olive oil
2 cups chopped onion
2 cups chopped celery
1 cup minced green bell pepper
2 cups peeled and chopped carrots
2 garlic cloves, minced
Sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
10 cups low-sodium vegetable broth
2 cups dried split peas
A few pinches of smoked paprika for topping
In a large pot, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the onions, green bell pepper
celery, carrots, and garlic. Season with salt and pepper and sauté, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes, until the vegetables start to soften.
Add the broth to the pot along with the split peas and bring to a simmer. Lower the heat so the soup stays at a simmer and cook for about 1 ¼ to 1 ½ hours until the split peas are very tender and starting to fall apart.
Topping with a few pinches of smoked paprika
Taste and adjust seasonings as needed. Serve in bowls with gluten-free crackers or organic blue tortilla chips.
