Hi everyone! I am excited to share a favorite soup of ours today. I admit-I hesitated to share this because the soup is just so......green. To some it might not look too appetizing, or if you've never had it you may be picturing a mouth full of frozen or canned peas. This tastes NOTHING like that!
At our house I've been fixing some type of bean or pea soup once a week. I encourage you to check out the bean/rice aisle at your grocery store as we share some of these recipes on Thrice the Spice! Beans/peas are such an easy soup to make, are extremely healthy and low-fat (if they have any fat at all), and are also inexpensive. Plus-you can generally make a bean soup using only one pot. What's not to like?
You can easily customize this soup to fit your family's needs. This particular night I also chopped 3 carrots, 3 celery stalks, and half of a large onion and put that in the soup as well. I also added a bit of "Rustic Italian Seasoning" I had on hand, which included spices such as oregano, thyme, garlic powder, etc.
You could also add in ham, or potatoes.
I hope you'll give split pea soup a try!
