Instant Pot Split Pea Soup


Instant Pot Split Pea Soup is the recipe for nights when you crave warming, easy, and comfort food. It is also one of my family’s favorite hearty and filling soup to make for a weeknight dinner. This soup is not only delicious but also easy and quick to prepare, as you can have a bowl of flavorful soup on the table in just 30 minutes. Just put your Instant Pot to work and have this comforting soup in no time!

And my favorite part about this warming recipe is that it uses smoked ham. It is deeply satisfying and creates rich broth too. Moreover, the pressure cooker enriches every single bite with the ham flavor. Serve each steaming bowl with fried bacon pieces, grated Parmesan cheese, croutons, fresh parsley – it’s your choice!
