Hearty Pea Soup (vegan)

Warm cooked food can make you feel cozy from the inside out. Try this simple hearty soup, served with a side of sautéd greens and some crusty bread.

6 cups vegetable broth
2 cups of split peas
1 large onion
3 carrots, chopped
3 ribs of celery, chopped
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1 tsp basil
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper

  1. Rinse peas well in cool water
  2. In a large saucepan, combine the first nine ingredients; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 1 hour or until peas are tender, stirring occasionally.
  3. For a smooth soup, process with immersion blender. For chunky soup, leave as is.
  4. Serve hot! Refrigerate leftovers. This soup is even better on the second day, as the flavors set in more overnight.
