Split pea soup is a traditional winter soup in The Netherlands. It has many health benefits since it’s stuffed with veggies – split peas (excellent source of fibre and minerals), leek (vitamin K, vitamin B6), carrots (excellent source of beta-carotene and good against heart disease), onions (help prevent osteoporosis), and turnip celery (rich in fiber and very low in calories). Notice we’re using boiling water instead of vegetable stock. The flavors of the soup’s ingredients are wonderful enough on their own, and let this soup stay low salt.
You’ll need 2 hours to make this soup but most of it is waiting time.
