Souped Up Split Pea Soup

The butternut squash in this 2 color pea soup adds creaminess, flavor and tons of nutrients.


  • Prep Time : 10 min
  • Cook Time : 45 min
  • Ready Time : 55 min




  • 1 package green split peas
  • 1 package yellow split peas
  • 2 can (48 oz. each) vegetable broth (low sodium)
  • 2 boxes frozen butternut squash
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 small bag of baby carrots, chopped
  • 6-8 cloves garlic, chopped
  • any seasoning you love to taste!


1 Pour cans of vegetable broth into a large pot. Rinse and mix both bags of peas in a colander and then add them to the broth. Heat on high heat and stir regularly. Add the butternut squash (Ok if it’s still frozen.)
2 In a food processor, chop together the onion, carrots, garlic and then add to the pot along with any other seasonings or spices of your choice.
3 Cook together until the peas are soft, stirring regularly throughout the process. (Spoon off and discard any “foam” that forms during the process.)

  2. Where does one find the split peas in the grocery store? Are they in bags with the various beans? Or are they somewhere else?

  3. This looks excellent ! Think it would be great with fresh Rosemary.Love it will try it out. And it’s healthy, too.

    how long do you cook the soup-it doesnt say also who makes such large cans of broth even the cardboard ones only have 32 oz

    • I find that pea soup tastes best after about 4 hours of cooking, but they are soft and ready after about 1 hour. So it depends on your preference.

        Tamar what about the 48 oz cans of vegetable broth where do you find them. do you have a brand name. also 4 hours wow that is longer than I cook my chicken soup

        • This is not my recipe, so I am not sure, I would honestly end up using water and just adding more salt. The store bough broths are too expensive for me. I know, it is long, but I just find whenever I try and do it for less I am not as happy. But I also prefer my chicken soup to cook all day, so it is personal preference. If you have a pressure cooker both can be made much faster.

    In this recipe, how many ounces in your package of green split peas? yellow split peas? and the boxes of frozen butternut squash?

    • It should be a 1 lb bag of each of the peas. The frozen butternut squash comes in 12 oz. packages.

  10. So glad you like my recipe! It is truly a crowd-pleaser at any holiday.
    Yes, it’s 1 pound bags of split peas and a 12 ounce box of frozen squash.

      Thanks Tamar I will ask Bonnie since it is her recipe Bonnie-how long do you cook the soup for -you dont say also what brand vegetable broth comes in 48 oz cans thanks

      • The recipe shows 2- 48 ounce cans. I usually buy a reduced-sodium type. I’d say the cooking time is between 1-1/2 to 2 hours. Sometimes you may need to add a little water if you desire a thinner soup. I like to practically eat mine with a fork!

        • avatar says: leah

          thanks Bonnie do you have a brand name for 48 oz cans I have never seen them so large and one last question do you cook the soup covered or uncovered

    • What is considered “a small bag of baby carrots?” Is it 1 lb? 1/2 lb?

      Thank you.

  11. Use water and powdered veg. soup to make broth.
