We are often asked if split pea soup is healthy. Split Pea soup is a good source of protein, iron, zinc, and phosphorus. Eating split peas and other legumes may help reduce cholesterol, high blood pressure and may also offer significant anti-inflammatory effects.
Stove Top, Instant pot and slow cooker directions are included on soup label.
Instant Pot Directions:
Chop one onion. Turn instant pot on and set to saute, medium. Melt butter or warm extra virgin olive oil in instant pot. Add onion and saute until translucent, about 5 - 7 minutes.
Add 8 cups water, contents of split pea soup mix and optional ham bone. If not using ham bone use half vegetable stock and half water. Optionally add 1 tsp salt. Tip: If you use hot water or stock your instant pot will come to pressure faster.
Set to high pressure 15 minutes. When done let natural release 15 minutes then quick release the instant pot. Remove cover.
Split pea soup in the instant pot doesn't even need to be pureed, the IP will do that for you. Love this appliance, love split pea soup!
If you used a ham bone to make the split pea soup, remove any meat left on the bone. Spoon into bowls and enjoy!
