I can’t believe how easy this Instant Pot Split Pea Soup is to make. And delicious? Um… incredibly so. Soup lovers, you have to try this!

Whether it’s a quick and satisfying lunch… or even dinner. It just fits the bill when you’re craving split pea. Which I always seem to do when the calendar turns to spring. Or winter. Okay… all year long. It’s just who I am. Soup twelve months of the year.

Why I Love This Recipe

I don’t really like the term “dump”. It’s just a “word” thing with me. But, it aptly describes this soup. To the bowl of a pressure cooker, you will add all of the ingredients. Pour 4 cups of water over the veggies, add the seasoning, and cook on high pressure for 8 minutes. That’s it.

Naturally release the pressure while you’re assembling a green salad and slicing some crusty French bread. I told you it was simple!

Frequently Asked Questions?

What kind of ham should I use in this soup?

This is a great way to use leftover ham from the holidays. Or, simply buy some thick sliced ham from the deli counter. If you happen to have a couple of ham hocks in the freezer, throw them in too!

How many servings does this soup make?

This soup recipe will serve 4. But if you have eaters with generous appetites, double the batch. Plus, it freezes well too.
