This Golden Split Pea Soup has just 8 ingredients (including water!) and is super healthy and delicious!
Now that the holidays are over and I’m paying more attention to fresh, well-balanced foods, I want to turn your attention to the alli® recipe resource. The recipe I’m sharing today is an alli® recipe and I absolutely love it. I’m a fan of Split Pea Soup anyway; it’s thick and hearty and fills me up with warm, soothing goodness!
I love that the alli® recipes aren’t restrictive and actually celebrate comfort food (and they have hundreds to choose from)! You know I’m a big comfort food fanatic but I also want to put foods in my body that make me feel good after I enjoy them, not only during my meals. I’m going to be sharing three more alli® recipes with you in the near future – I can’t wait! You can also surf their recipes by your “target” then by breakfast, lunch, dinner or snacks. You can narrow that down even further by beef, pork, seafood, poultry or vegetarian. Something delicious and healthy for everyone!
This Golden Split Pea Soup recipe is so easy and quick. It only has eight ingredients and that includes water and a little oil for the pan! I always keep dried peas and beans on hand for easy soup recipes like this one. I’ll just pick up some onions and potatoes (if I don’t already have them on hand, which I usually do; they’re staples in this house) and add some chicken stock and a couple of seasonings. SO simple! You can make a double batch since it freezes well, too. Another thing I love is that it calls for poultry seasoning – you know, that seasoning that you pick up around Thanksgiving then never use again? Now you’ll use it up and enjoy it at the same time!
If you’re trying eat healthier this new year or are simply staying on track with your routine, I know you’ll love this Split Pea Soup recipe and all the other delicious alli® recipes! Since I’m sure you’ll want to start with this recipe, so here are the steps to make it:
First, you just want to saute some chopped onion:
While the onions are on the stove, cut your potatoes into bite-size pieces (I like to use red or white potatoes so I don’t even have to peel them):
Measure out your dried peas:
Then add them to the onions:
Now add the remaining ingredients and just let it simmer!
The active prep time for this Golden Split Pea Soup is about ten minutes. Once it’s done, I like to use a potato masher to thicken it but that’s just extra arm reps :) It takes about 45 minutes of simmering which is the perfect time for you to get a good workout in then reward yourself with this delicious lunch or dinner!
