Split peas are a good source of protein.

When you cook soup for yourself, it is not always practical to prepare a full batch, only to consign leftovers to the trash or the freezer. The next time you want to enjoy a warm bowl of soup alone, make a single serving of split pea soup. It is healthy and easy to prepare in a single portion.

Things You'll Need

  • Saucepan
  • Olive oil
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 clove minced garlic
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1/8 cup split peas
  • 1 cup chicken broth

Instructions

    • 1

      Place a sauce pan on the burner and set it to medium heat. Add enough olive oil to the pan to coat the bottom, then add 1/4 cup chopped onions, 1/2 clove of minced garlic, a pinch of salt and a pinch of pepper. Stir occasionally until the onion becomes soft.

    • 2

      Add 1/8 cup split peas and 1 cup chicken broth and stir the mixture every 5 minutes for 45 minutes. Turn up the heat if the soup does not come to a simmer within 10 minutes. Turn the heat down if the soup begins to boil.

    • 3

      Stir in 4 tablespoons of milk, and add salt and pepper to taste. Remove from heat and allow the soup to cool slightly before you eat it.

Tips & Warnings

  • Experiment with adding other vegetables, such as carrots and potatoes, to your split pea soup.
