Hot, filling and healthy, our Health-e-Recipe for Super Split Pea Soup is a great dish to ward off wintry chills.
Peas are a legume, like dry beans and lentils. Legumes have plenty of cancer-fighting fiber (a robust 17 grams per serving in this recipe).
All legumes contain protein without fat, so they are a great way to cut back on meat while still getting good nutrition. You get 21 grams of protein per serving of this soup’s combination of peas and chicken broth.
Herbs and vegetables, including onion, carrots and potatoes, round out Super Split Pea Soup with protective phytochemicals. Serve it up with a hunk of crusty whole-grain bread and freeze the leftovers to enjoy on other chilly winter days.
