Instant Pot Split Pea Soup


1 pounds dried split peas
1/2 large onion, diced
2-4 carrots, peeled and sliced
5 cups vegetable broth
1.5-2 cups non-dairy unsweetened milk (or 2 more cups broth or water)
1 tsp liquid smoke
1 T olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
optional seasonings: 1/2 cup fresh chopped kale, 1/3 cup chopped basil, 4 minced garlic cloves


If you have the time, you can sauté the onions and garlic until soft or caramelized and go from there. If not (as I did not last night), you can just throw it all in with the beans.

Add beans and sautéed or raw vegetables and remainder of ingredients except salt, pepper, and non-dairy milk to pressure cooker. Bring to high pressure. Cook for 15 minutes and then allow to naturally depressurize.

Warm the milk slightly and then add to the soup and stir in. Salt and pepper to taste. Serve with fresh bread, salad, or fruit.
