This stew is a family favorite. Normally, split pea soup is flavored with ham hocks or some other non-vegetarian ingredient, but this recipe is totally vegetarian and can be vegan if the yogurt is left out. An added benefit: this is a one dish meal! The peas are full of fiber and protein, and the veggies and rice make for a well-balanced meal. Enjoy!

Step 1: Get ready...

First, dress up in an outfit that inspires you to cook.
This recipe provides four large servings (as the only dish), or up to eight smaller servings as a side dish.
