GREEN SPLIT PEA SOUP WITH FRESH HERBS

This green split pea soup with fresh herbs recipe is perfect for you to start enjoying all the powerful benefits of eating fresh herbs all in one sitting.

I know, another soup recipe but this one I had to share with you because it’s one that I make very frequently. My children usually love to complain about how I don’t make their favorite dishes that often. They say I don’t cook what they like, but they never protest when I make this soup. I have prepared this recipe a million times and always like magic it’s gone.

I’ve made this soup even more since I got a surprise package delivered to my house. Sergio opened the door, and he almost fell back when he saw the size of the box. I kept trying to think of what I could have possibly ordered (sometimes I can be a little scatterbrained), but I couldn’t remember.

Turns out that when I open the box, there was a fabulous InstaPOT inside! It was a total surprise! I wasn’t expecting it at all, and the best part is that when I saw who it was from it made my eyes water from happiness.

My friend Nina was responsible for this fantastic gift, am I lucky or what!!!!!!! Nina has always been a little distressed about how my daily life is a nonstop marathon between taking care of my kids, my dog, going to soccer games, etc.

When she discovered the InstantPOT and realized how fast and easy it is to make many dishes she got online and send me one. It is worth it to get one, and I will be eternally grateful to her for her amazing and generous gift!

Back to the recipe! I want to let you know that before my marvelous gift I always cooked this soup on the stovetop and it comes out equally tasty and satisfying. The best thing about this soup is that while enjoying a terrific meal, you are also and without knowing eating the equivalent of a large salad while the fresh ingredients help to nourish, clean and purify our body.
