Picture of Vegetarian Split Pea Soup
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!
