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 25 to 35 minutes of cooking. (You may need to add some additional veggie broth if the soup is too thick.)

This is so easy to make, is the perfect comfort food and doesn’t contain any nasty ingredients.
The vegetables I use are just a guide, you can add or subtract to your individual taste. I would not recommend substituting in the onion and the canned tomatoes, but everything else is fine.

Don’t freak out if you are seeing the word “sausage” in the headline, it’s vegan. Trust me when I promise you that everything on this site is vegan!
There is a local restaurant that I always thought made the best lentil soup…until now. This has become a new favorite in our house for vegans and non-vegans, alike.
I used the Trader Joe’s Italian Sausage-less Sausage in this soup and it tastes absolutely fantastic. You can also top each bowl with a dollop of vegan sour cream for extra creaminess.
