It is a cold day here in Southern California, a brisk 60 degrees! Time for soup. But, to be perfectly honest, every day is a great day for soup.
This comes together rather quickly 1 hour, tops, including cook time. Use your imagination for whatever you want to use as toppings….vegan sour cream, avocado, tortilla strips, fresh cilantro, or all of the above!
An extra added taste is a squeeze of fresh lime juice. YUM!
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.)
