  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cup carrots julienned, (about 1 1/2 inches long)
  • 1 cup celery diced
  • 3/4 cup onion diced
  • 8 cloves garlic minced
  • 10 cup low-sodium chicken broth OR vegetable stock
  • 1 tbsp herbs de provence
  • 1 1/2 tsp kosher sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1 sprig rosemary
  • 2 tsp white vinegar or red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup yellow split peas
  • 1/2 cup green split peas
  • 1 cup green lentils
  • 2 cup butternut squash cubed
  • 1 cup potatoes cubed
  • 1 cup celery root cubed
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 cup kale chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley chopped
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese grated or shaved, optional


  • In a large stock pot or Dutch-oven set over medium heat, add the olive oil. When the oil is hot, add the celery, onion and carrots, sauté until tender, about 3-4 minutes. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  • Pour in the chicken broth, turn heat to medium-high and bring to a boil. Add the herbs, salt, pepper, paprika, rosemary, vinegar, split peas, and lentils. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 30 minutes.
  • Add the butternut squash, potatoes and celery root, simmer for an additional 30 minutes or until the veggies and the peas/lentils are tender.
  • Place 4 cups of soup in a blender with 1/4 cup of olive oil. Pulse until smooth and creamy. Pour back into the pot and stir to combine. Add chopped kale, parsley and parmesan, simmer for an additional 5-8 minutes.
  • Remove from the heat and allow to rest for 5 minutes before serving.


  • Cheese is totally optional but delicious!
