Cheap and healthy alternative to salty canned soup
I love split pea soup, but since I'm vegan it can be difficult to find good soup without bacon or cream. This is a easy option that tastes very elegant. Bonus the dash of Extra Virgin Olive Oil is amazing for reducing bad omegas and lowering cholesterol.

Sorry I didn't take pictures of the steps, I wasn't expecting it to turn out so yummy!
