|Vegan Split Pea Soup|
Vegan Split Pea Soup
2 peeled and sliced carrots (we like silver dollars)
2 stalks celery, chopped
1 half medium yellow onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
11/2 teaspoons salt
1 tablespoon dried parsley
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 bag split peas
6 cups water
In a large stockpot warm olive oil and sweat vegetables. Rinse split peas and set aside. Once vegetables are transparent, add water and peas stirring immediately. Bring to a low boil and reduce to simmer stirring occasionally. The soup will cook for about an hour or longer until it is a smooth texture and you will probably need to add a cup of water toward the end. Some people like to puree their split pea soup but we like it chunky. You can puree it in a blender if you like.
Healing Honey Sweet Tea
4 Family Size Bags Decaffeinated Louisiana Tea
3 Regular Size Bags Celestial Seasonings Peach Chamomile or Blueberry, or any other flavor you choose. We like the blueberry blend because it supports lung health and the chamomile because it is calming.
1 cup organic local honey, honey balances the acid in the stomach and prevents allergies. You will need to adjust the amount of honey according to the moisture content of your honey. Thicker honey is sweeter.
Simmer the tea on the stove in water and add the honey to the bottom of a gallon pitcher. When the tea is strong like coffee, strain it into the pitcher to melt the honey, stir and add water to fill up the pitcher.
