Growing up I remember my Grandmother preparing a big pot of split pea soup on the stove. I recall the rich aromas of sautéed onions and leafy vegetables. I was fortunate at times to help prepare this soup and eventually learned to add my own "Milli Twist" to this revered recipe. After my surgery in 2014, I decided to share my hearty, vegan version (taste buds won't notice if you're still a meat-lover). I'm accustomed to preparing this recipe in a Dutch Oven yet you can use a stainless-steel stock pot as well. I'm delighted to share this soup recipe with you as it was first featured in 2015.
UPDATE: As I continued along my wellness journey, I learned more about foods that maintain alkalinity to keep the body healthy and resistant to illness and dis-ease in the body. To my surprise, split peas which are part of the Standard American Diet can help the body formulate mucus. Since then, I've made note to minimize how often I enjoy this hearty soup. You can print a .pdf version of the recipe below.
Enjoy from my kitchen to yours!
