Green on Green soup!

Everyone in our house is either recovering from or coming down with the same stupid cold today - so I am making some comforting yummy soup FULL of all sorts of good things to make us feel better.

This is what I am making today - I adapted this recipe from the FatFree Vegan Kitchen  blog - tons of good recipes on her site  - check it out!

Green on Green Soup:
1 large sweet onion chopped
1 Tbs diced garlic (about 3 cloves)
2 ribs celery chopped
4 carrots (not baby) coined
2/3 cup dried green split peas
3 large handfuls of spinach
1 sweet potato chopped
2 teas dried basil
2 pieces dried seaweed crumbled (opt)
4 cups veggie broth
4 cups water
1 veggie bullion cube
1 teas Mrs Dash seasoning
2 teas nutritional yeast (opt)
1 Tbs lemon juice
ground black pepper and sea salt to taste

Saute veggies in order, add liquids and seasonings. Bring to a boil (about 6mins) and then reduce and simmer at least one hour.  Blend in batches or use immersion blender to blend soup until thick and creamy.

Serve with sour cream or plain yogurt and/or lemon slices.
