Dakota Smashed Pea and Barley Soup

READY IN: 1hr 45mins
Recipe by Shelly Morton

This recipe is from a California Pizza Kitchen cookbook and is delicious. It has NO FAT and is vegetarian...perhaps even vegan. Try it...you'll like it. The recipe calls for a large pinch of cumin, but Recipezaar wouldn't accept that description so I guessed it to be about 1/8 teaspoon.

My husband and I think it's delicious. Will definitely make it again.
