Vegetarian Split Pea Soup
Yield: 4 servings
Active Time: 10 minutes
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
A “non-traditional” split pea soup - because this one doesn’t have ham and is vegetarian! We are going to chop up all the veggies and get all the other spices and ingredients together into a freezer baggie, then freeze. We won’t freeze the dried split peas, but instead, will add them at the time of cooking. Having all the prep and chop work done in advance makes getting this onto the table a breeze. Enjoy!
