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!
I have made Potato Leek Soup so many times! The other night I decided to try something different. I needed to use up a 32-oz. bag of Organic Riced Cauliflower and also had a few leeks on hand. The more I thought about it the more I liked the idea. I love using cauliflower in place of mashed potatoes…so why not?!
This soup only uses a few ingredients and comes together super-quick. You can omit the Vegan Mozzarella, use a little more/less, or substitute another variety…you really can’t lose.
With the fall months just a few weeks away, I would recommend you give this yummy soup a try!
