So today I'm channeling my nostalgia for sweater-weather Novembers and snow covered grounds with this soup. 80-degree-thunder-storm-pouring-rain will just have to do. It's not bad, just different.
Mom's Split Pea Soup
- 1lb organic split peas
- 1 yellow onion chopped
- 2 cloves garlic chopped
- 3 carrots and 2 parsnips
- Olive Oil
- 1 tsp each sea salt, dried basil, thyme.
- 6 cups water or vegetable broth
It feeds many mouths. But if you're dining solo or with one other, it freezes beautifully. Wait until it's cool and then pour into individual tupperware containers and pop into the fridge. Then when you need a lunch or dinner you can set it out in the morning, reheat and voila-Love.
