Hearty Split Pea Soup

Wow, we are at recipe 16 already, only 4 more to go for September. I hope you all have had as much fun as I have visiting all the other wonderful vegan blogs.

Well, it is Sunday again, and so here is another soup. The leaves you see in the picture are from my back yard. There was one there in the morning and then when I went out again around lunch time, there was a light layer of them. It is almost like once the first leaf fell, the others all said…..lets go.

With Fall officially here, a nice big bowl of Heatry Split Pea Soup seem very appropriate.

Enjoy,
