"Eat It All Up" Soup

Or at least that's what I would've called it. I think I might eat the whole pot of this stuff in one sitting. Its Adam's Yellow Split Pea Chowder from La Dolce Vegan. You wouldn't know that its such a simple recipe from its taste. All it is is onion, celery, carrot, veggie broth, basil, salt, split peas and brown rice. The carrots give the soup its gorgeous orange colour, and the rice and peas provide awesome chewiness. I blended the soup with a hand blender but left a few carrots chunks and pieces of rice.
I love this soup, I'll definitely be making it again. I'm a little bummed by all my exams right now, and this was the perfect comfort soup! Its so easy to make too. Once the veggies are softened and the rest of the ingredients are added you just let it do its thing on the stove for 45 minutes. The time flew for me, I was studying. Oh and its cheap to make...the bag of peas I bought was 99 cents, think of how much cheaper it would be if you bought the peas in bulk!

If you have LDV, you should make this soup soon!! And then send me some!

I love split pea, just what you need in the cold, Canadian winter. I have not used the recipe from LDV yet though. I still just make the veganized version of my mother's split pea soup (my mom is the best cook in the world and makes me great vegan food too).
