Chunky Split Pea Quinoa Vegetable Soup

Chunky Split Pea Quinoa Soup

IT'S SOUP SEASON! I am shouting it from the rooftops because soups are my absolute fave thing to meal prep. Making a big soup on a Sunday to enjoy throughout the week is the best. I like making hearty soups with a ton of vegetables. So satisfying! This is my healthy, simple take on a classic split pea soup. The thing about soups is that they take almost minimal effort once you get everything in the pot - just time! That is why I love meal prepping them.

I used Inspired Organics Green Split Peas and Inspired Organics Tri-Color Quinoa in this soup. Split peas are high in fiber, magnesium and iron. Quinoa is a great grain for this soup because adds extra protein and texture.  I love that it cooks directly in the soup so you do not need to cook it separately. The liquid base Vegetable Broth and Chicken Bone Broth. Inspired Organics has both of these as well. You can really choose any stock/broth mixture you want.  The vegetable rest of the mix ins (carrots, celery, onion) below can be swapped with any of your favorite vegetables. I would always keep the onions though because they add so much flavor!

 6 cups Vegetable Stock or Meat Broth
 ¼ cup Tri-Color Quinoa (Dry)
 1.50 cups Green Split Peas (Dry)
 1 Large Sweet Onion
 1 cup Chopped Rainbow Carrots (Heaping Cup)
 1 cup Chopped Celery (Heaping Cup)

3

Add green split peas and let cook in the liquid for 10 minutes. Miix frequently.

4

Add quinoa, carrots, celery and onions to pot and mix. Reduce heat down to low.

5

*The longer you cook it the more the vegetables, quinoa and split peas will expand and the thicker the soup will get. After one hour, everything should be cooked through to serve the soup.*
