Split Pea Soup

Hello friends,

Today I am sharing a recipe for a split pea soup, a perfect option for this COLD winter we are having in Toronto!

Soup is a great, easy and affordable way to get a lot of nutrition in one meal. This soup recipe is simple, tasty, cost-effective and adaptable. It takes under 30 minutes to make, costs under $10 total and you can use any type of split pea, cooked beans or lentils- whatever you have on hand!

Nutritionally, peas are a great source of vegetarian protein and fibre. They are great to add to your diet for a variety of protein, and the fibre content helps to stabilize blood sugar and keep you full! Peas are also a good source of minerals manganese, potassium and copper, and B vitamins (B1, B5 and folate).
