Cheap Vegan🌱Pea Soup

When the topic of being vegan comes up around friends and family, often what we hear is… we can’t afford to be vegan, what can you eat? and I wouldn’t even know what to cook. 

Thats what’s inspired me to add some of our most basic, affordable meals that we love to eat. Another one of our favorites is our tofu chili. This pea soup is one Ryan and I have several times a month. What’s nice is you can make a whole pot of this soup in an hour for under $5, and it will make lots of leftovers for the week. Sometimes I add in different veggies to change it up or none at all…


In a big pot of water add in the split peas, cooking them at medium heat. I usually start heating up the water and then start cutting veggies. Once your ready, add in the rest of the ingredients. You will want to stir it occasionally, and as the peas cook down, I usually turn it down to a simmer so It doesn’t start to burn the bottom of the pot.

I continue to cook until it is thick and almost a mushy constistancy. If you stop cooking too early the peas will be too hard, but you can tweak this to your desired taste and texture.

It feels almost silly to include such a basic soup recipe, even though it’s super yummy, but that’s what I want to share with people. Being vegan 🌱 is EASY!
