Tina's (Healthy) Pea Soup

This is the most delicious vegan soup in the world and it's easy! This soup gets even better when you make it with a smoked paprika (hard to find sometimes- so if you do, buy 4- you'll want it instead of the regular for just about everything!).

So here it is friends, from my sister in laws recipe files, to mine and on to your own.. Enjoy!

1.5C Split Peas
2Tbs Olive Oil
1 Large Onion
2 Diced Carrots
2 Large Garlic Cloves
1/4C Chopped Parsley
1tsp Marjoram
1tsp Rosemary
1tsp paprika
2 Bay leaves
2 Quarts of Veggie Stalk
Salt/Pepper to taste

  1. Cover peas with hot water and set aside
  2. Heat oil with onion and carrots; saute for 10 minutes
  3. Add garlic, parsley, herbs, paprika and salt/pepper
  4. Drain peas (that you set aside previously) and add with aromatics
  5. Simmer for one hour

You can puree this, or have it as is. I like it both ways, so it's up to you.

This soup is easy and makes a great weeknight meal, so don't be scared to dive in and make it tonight or tomorrow!
