It’s officially COLD! The windows are shut and the heat is on. All I want is to curl up by the fire with a good book and a cup of this soup…

Split Pea Soup is one my of my all-time favorite recipes. It was one of my staples when I went vegan over twenty (!) years ago. I made it for my Dad not knowing it happened to be his favorite soup. Must be in our Irish blood…

An old Irish/English nursery rhyme from the 18th century goes like so:

Pease porridge hot,
Pease porridge cold,
Pease porridge in the pot
Nine days old.

(“Pease” being the plural of “pea.”)

It’s a simple soup but the peas alone pack 16 grams of protein per cup.  Perfect for an extra boost if you’re working out and trying to gain muscle. So eat up!
