Pretty much the only winter things I am sorry to see go are the hearty and warm dishes like chili. A great way to ease away from the heavier winter foods, and into lighter foods for summer is a split pea soup loaded with seasonal spring ingredients.


  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil or avocado oil

  • 2 large onions, chopped

  • 5 cups water, plus more after blending

  • 2 cups dried split green peas, picked over and rinsed

  • 6 cups water

  • juice of 1 lemon


  1. Add olive or avocado oil to a medium to large pot over med-high heat. Stir in onions and salt and cook for a minute or two until the onions soften. Add the split peas and water, and bring to a boil. Then, turn down the heat, and simmer for 20 minutes, or until the peas are cooked through. Careful not to overcook. Leave them a little al dente.

  2. Using a hand blender, puree the soup. If you're using a regular blender, let the soup cool first.

  3. Stir in the lemon juice and taste. Add more salt and other spices like thyme or smoked paprika if you like.
