Servings: 4 Preparation Time: 1 hour, 30 minutes
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil
- 1/2 cup chopped celery
- 1 cup chopped carrots
- 1 cup chopped onions
- 2 teaspoons sea salt
- 1 1/2 cup rinsed and picked green split peas
- 4 cups vegetable broth

In a large pot add coconut oil and set on medium heat. Once the oil is hot, add celery, carrots, onions and salt. Cook the vegetables until the onions are translucent, 5-7 minutes.
Add split peas, broth, turmeric, cumin and pepper. Stir to combine all seasonings, turn the heat to high and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low, cover and simmer for an hour – stirring occasionally. Add the seasoned and cook ground beef and let simmer for 10 minutes. Enjoy.
Variation: Add 1/3 cup barley and 1/4 cup lentils with the split peas.
