Vegan Split Pea Soup

Vegan Split Pea and Sweet Potato Soup

Savory, smooth, and hearty, traditional split pea soup is made with ham hocks to give it that signature salty flavor. But you can easily omit the meat and make the soup with celery and sweet potatoes for a delicious vegan twist. This soup only needs to simmer for a couple hours and is around 250 calories per fiber- and protein-packed bowl.
