This is a wonderful thick vegetarian pea soup for those who love the taste of dill. I found it in a book from The Heart Rock Cafe in Winnipeg called Straight from the Heart! Volume 1. I used green split peas, but you could probably use yellow instead.
- 7 cups vegetable stock
- 1 cup onion, chopped
- 2 garlic cloves, finely minced
- 1 1⁄2 cups carrots, chopped
- 1 1⁄2 cups potatoes, peeled and chopped
- 1 1⁄2 cups split peas, rinsed
- 1⁄4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
- salt (as desired)
- 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper
- 1⁄3 cup small shell pasta (shells, bows)
- 1⁄4 cup fresh dill, snipped
