Okay, I know ’tis the season, but we can’t live on vegan holiday cookies and peppermint bark! Put something warm and nourishing in your belly with this super-easy soup recipe.
When I think of split pea soup, I think simplicity. A savory stew of peas, tender chunks of carrots and celery with just a hint of onion and garlic.
This recipe is simple as simple can be. I load the ingredients in the crockpot on my way out the door in the morning, and a few hours later I have a thick, hearty soup. That’s magic.
