Quick and easy Instant Pot Split Pea Soup made with just a few ingredients and done in about 40 minutes, start to finish.
Long live all the easy Instant Pot recipes! I’m so excited to share this Instant Pot Split Pea Soup recipe with you today because it’s one of my favorite soups, done in the pressure cooker, and it only takes about 40 minutes to get on the table. It’s full of veggies, is really inexpensive to make, and is hearty and full of flavor. I feel like split pea soup gets a bad rap because of it’s thick texture and green color, but I’m here to tell you that it is awesome! It tastes just like other ham and bean recipes but takes a fraction of the time. Today I’m working with Hurst’s Beans again (love them!) with their split peas. Split peas are one of those hidden gems that not enough folks are using. I love them because they are high in protein and fiber and have all kinds of vitamins and minerals. They are also fun to work with because they break down when cooked, meaning you don’t have to process anything in the blender or food processor to get a smooth soup. The only chunks in this soup are the veggies and a little bit of ham. The split peas just make everything thick and creamy.
Here’s why I’m excited to be working with Hurst’s Beans today. Hurst’s is a 4th generation family-owned company that is based out of Indiana (I was raised in Indiana and consider myself a Hoosier through and through), and they’ve been a brand that has been in my cupboard, my mom’s cupboard, and my grandma’s cupboard for years and years. I grew up loving the 15 Bean Soup Mix, and their products are ones I use and know well. I’m so excited to be working with them today. They grow their beans in the US and Canada (yay!), and the flavor packets really are just seasonings in a convenient little package. They are gluten-free and vegan and have no added MSG. This is a great brand, and I can’t wait for you to bring them into your own kitchen if you haven’t already.
Other recipes that I’ve made using Hurst’s Beans include Slow Cooker Refried Beans, Instant Pot Vegetarian Chili, and Instant Pot Slow Cooker Cajun Beans and Rice. All of which I think you should make. 🙂
