How to make Instant Pot Split Pea Soup?

  • To make split pea soup inside Instant Pot (this is the one I have and use!) first turn it ON on saute mode. Add bacon pieces and saute for 5 minutes, stirring few times.
  • Next, add onion and saute for 5-10 minutes or until onion is soft. Transfer to a plate.
  • Pour 8 cups of water into the Instant Pot and add smoked turkey wings. Cover the lid & place steam valve in a sealing position,and cook on high pressure or SOUP/BROTH mode for about 15 minutes.
  • Quick Release the Pressure. Transfer turkey wings on to a cutting board and cut the meat into bite size pieces, then return it back into the pot. Add 1 cup of split peas, 3 cups of potatoes, 2-3 bay leaves and one cubed carrot.
    Cover the lid & place steam valve in a sealing position,and cook on high pressure or SOUP/BROTH mode for another 15 minutes.
  • Quick Release the Pressure. Stir in saute bacon with onion and season with salt and pepper to taste. Garnish with fresh dill & serve with Homemade Bread. Enjoy!
