I have always loved split pea soup and this version adds a few more spices than the normal, somewhat bland, version.
Try serving it with a generous portion of crusty french bread or alongside a kale salad. Green + Green helps keep you healthy!
If you want an even hardier soup, try adding a large, diced potato with the split peas or 1/4 cup pearled barley during the last 2r minutes of cooking. (You may need to add some additional veggie broth if the soup is too thick.)

As I have said before, soup should be a food group…especially during the winter!
This hardy minestrone is super-healthy. You can opt to make it with or without the pasta. Also, you can experiment with using other beans other than the ones listed in this recipe.
I would recommend doubling the recipe and freezing the extra in some large-sized Ball jars. These are on sale usually every-other-week at Hobby Lobby!
It’s Fall! Horray. My birthday and lots and lots of pumpkin. I went into Trader Joe’s a few days ago and they have dozens of pumpkin food items, even dog treats!
There are a gazillion pumpkin cake recipes out there but I recommend you try this one. You can top it with your choice of Vegan Whipped Cream, Powdered Sugar, Vegan Cream Cheese Frosting, or all by itself.
I used half-sized bundt pans and if you don’t have them you can use 2 loaf pans or a 9 x 13″ baking dish.
