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.)

ENJOY!
