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.)

My husband was getting ready to go out of town and I needed to whip up a quick dinner. I had some sliced mushrooms in the refrigerator and decided to make them the star attraction. I love just about anything Mexican and this dish is not too spicy. (Although, feel free to add some kick if that is your style!)
You can experiment with adding more ingredients, like black beans, corn or even Soyrizo. The possibilities are as big as your imagination.
I used to think the correct way to pronounce Broccoli Rabe was RAW-BAY. I remember that every time my godfather pronounced it Broccoli ROB, I chuckled to myself. When I realized I was the one mispronouncing it, I decided to make up for my mistake by using it as key ingredient in numerous recipes!
Anyway, Potato/Potatoe, Broccoli Rabe is all sorts of delicious. This recipe a great red and green main or side dish to serve during the holidays.
