“Great for Kidney Function, High in Fiber, Full of Antioxidants”
Here is a wonderful vegan spicy split pea soup recipe that’s very filling and will provide a person with lots of nutrition and energy. This soup is great on a cold winters day. And this soup is sure to please everyone with lots of rib-sticking protein that will do the body good—plus it’s super quick and simple to make.
2 - Cups of Organic Dry Yellow Split Peas
2 - Cups of Cooked Organic Brown Rice
2 - Cups of Organic White Eggplant - Chopped Very Fine
1 - Large Organic Yellow Onion - Chopped
6 - Large Cloves of Organic Garlic - Minced
1 - Teaspoon of Organic Chili Powder
1 - Tablespoon of Organic Tomato Paste
1 - Teaspoon of Organic Garlic Powder
1 - Teaspoon of Organic Oregano - Fresh or Dried
1 - Teaspoon of Organic Cumin Seeds - Whole or Ground
A Dash of Stevia, Agave Nectar, or Honey
2 - Teaspoon of Organic Ground Annatto Seed— for a nice rich yellow color
Salt and Pepper to Taste
Enough Filtered Water to Cover Everything and a Little Bit Extra
Garnish with a Bit of Greens - Perhaps Chopped Kale or Taiwan Spinach that I have here.
(Optional) - A Little Bit of Hot Pepper Sauce — If you like it extra spicy
Place all the ingredients in a large pot and add everything. Bring to a boil and then lower to a simmer until everything is tender and the split peas are done. Remover from the stove and let cool and serve. But I find that if you want a soup that’s a little bit thicker just place the soup in the frig overnight and it will thicken up and become a really nice thick soup— Wonderful!
Serve with a nice salad and you have a full spectrum meal with lots of protein.

Health Benefits of Organic Green Peas
Peas contain coumestrol which is a powerful antioxidant that helps to prevent stomach cancer. One cup of peas contains 10 milligrams of coumestrol which is 5 times more than what we need to prevent stomach cancer. Peas also contain lots of healing Omega 3 and 6 oils which are important for cardiovascular health.
New studies show that peas contain certain types of proteins that help to prevent and heal kidney disease and lower blood pressure. Studies at the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg showed that rats with kidney disease fed pea protein had a huge boost in kidney function. They are not sure exactly why this happens but they think it has to do with the stimulation of cyclooxygenase -1 agent production which is very healing for kidney tissue and lowers blood pressure.
Peas also help to lower and stabilize blood sugar thus peas are great food for diabetics. And peas also help with oxidative stress which is important for preventing Type 2 Diabetes. Fiber is important for boosting up our probiotic bacteria and peas contain lots of fiber. One cup of peas contains from 8 to 10 grams of fiber.
Peas contain agents that help to lower inflammation thus helping to prevent and heal arthritis, joint disease, and other types of inflammatory diseases. Peas contain pisomosides and saponins that heal and prevent inflammation which is the first step towards disease. Peas help to prevent cardiovascular disease and strokes because they contain lots of great Omega 3 oils.
Enjoy this Wonderful Soup!
