Split Pea Soup

Split Pea Soup

split-pea-soup-smThis is a yummy vegan soup.    The last time I made it, I added chopped zucchini at the last 10 minutes, but probably won’t add it again….it was good, but the soup just didn’t need it.  I really liked the flavor of the celery salt in the soup.  This soup freezes okay.  It’s nice to have a variety of soups in the freezer for quick lunches or meals.

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon celery salt
