2016 is the International Year of the Pulses. I think we can all set a goal to eat more beans, peas and lentils – they pack a lot of nutrition, are very affordable and couldn’t be easier to prepare! Dried peas do not require any soaking before cooking; which makes the prep for this meal even simpler. This hearty soup is a great one pot vegetarian meal that your whole family will love. Hope you enjoy!
