The Chef and The Dietitian – Episode 51 – Split Pea Soup

Nothing warms up winter more than a piping hot bowl of your favorite soup. Split pea soup is traditionally made with ham, but this version is nutrient-rich, hearty, delicious and animal-free. In this episode of The Chef and The Dietitian, Chef AJ schools us on how to use a pressure cooker (something I am both fascinated and intimidated by, for some reason) to make this delicious soup in SIX minutes!

4 cloves garlic, pressed
1 pound carrots, sliced
1 whole celery bunch, cut up

1-2 Tbls. salt-free seasoning

1 tsp. oregano
