Split Pea Soup
This high-protein soup is packed with benefits‚ thanks to the addition of hemp seeds! Served with a salad it easily makes a satisfying‚ balanced meal.
2 Tbsp Coconut Oil
In a large soup pot, heat the coconut oil over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook for 2 minutes. Add the garlic, carrots and celery, and cook for 3-4 minutes longer to soften the vegetables.
Add the bay leaves, peas, miso paste and water, and stir to combine. Cover, bring to a simmer, then reduce heat to medium-low.
Cook for 50-60 minutes, stirring occasionally, until peas have broken down. Add additional water if needed. Add the walnuts and Hemp Seeds, and adjust seasonings if desired.
