Ingredients

  • 1/2 white onion diced
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 stalks celery diced
  • 1 large carrot diced
  • 1/2 red pepper diced
  • 1 medium russet potato peeled and cubed
  • 1 cup split peas soaked overnight in water
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 cups frozen sweet corn
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 cups spinach
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • In a stockpot over medium heat, sauté onions, garlic, celery, and carrots until softened. Add peppers, potato, split peas, vegetable broth and bay leaves and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer, covered, for 40-45 minutes, until potatoes and split peas are tender.
  • Stir in frozen corn, nutritional yeast and seasoning and simmer until heated through.
  • Optionally, for a thicker base, remove 1/4-1/3 of the soup to a blender and blend until smooth. Return purée to the rest of the soup. Stir in fresh spinach until just wilted and serve.
  • This is especially good paired with crusty French bread or croutons. Leftovers refrigerate well for 3-5 days in an airtight container.
