    FLKeysJen's Note:

    Low in fat and high in fiber! We added some diced ham leftover from Easter but even without it this has lots of protein and is quite filling for 2-3 people. Originally from Light & Tasty.

      Delicious! The best pea soup I have had in a LONG time! The quinoa gives it a great texture. I have already shared this recipe :)

      Everyone (including the kids) loved this! My favorite part is the awesome color. Tripled the recipe and used vegan sour cream. Thanks for a quick dinner!

      A perfect soup to make when you haven't been to the supermarket for a while... Healthy, flavorful and quick. I topped mine with some cooked turkey bacon for some smokiness and it was delicious and satisfying. Thank you.
