Split Pea Soup
One of my favorite recipes especially in colder months, is split pea soup. Easy, healthy, and delicious (not to mention wallet-friendly), what's not to love! This is great to make on a lazy Sunday and will serve you for the rest of the week. I hope this silky smooth soup brings you warmth and comfort, enjoy!
- 1/2 bag of split peas (soaked for at least 8 hours)
- 2 carrots, chopped
- 3 cloves of garlic, crushed
- 2 bay leaves
- sea salt and black pepper to taste
After soaking the peas, drain the water and add 8 cups of fresh water to a large pot. Add the carrots, garlic, and salt and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer for two hours, checking every 20 minutes to add more water as needed. Once the peas are soft, remove the bay leaves and let cool for a bit before transferring the soup to a high powered blender, such as a Vitamin. The result will be green, creamy goodness.
