About this Recipe

Instant Pot Yellow Split Pea Soup is a spin-off of our original Instant Pot Split Pea Soup, which so many of you got creative with and shared ideas for. I love that you...


✓ 6 cups water (plus more for soaking)
✓ 3 cups small cubed ham
✓ 5 medium carrots (1" thick rounds-peeled)
✓ 2 cups yellow split peas (soak in hot water for 20 minutes prior-drain before adding to recipe)
✓ 2 tablespoons bacon fat (for best results-otherwise use fat of choice)
✓ 1 teaspoon turmeric
✓ 1 teaspoon chili powder
✓ 1 teaspoon coriander
✓ 1/2 teaspoon salt (optional-the ham is already salty so use your judgement based on personal preference)
✓ 1/4 teaspoon piri piri (African hot pepper powder) (optional-or cayenne)


✓ Soak peas in hot water (for 30 minutes)
✓ Turn on IP to saute, add bacon fat
