Get Cozy with a Bowl of Vegan Split Pea Soup

One of the best things about the chilly temperatures is that I get the opportunity to warm up with homemade soups. I love letting this split pea soup simmer in my crock pot on a lazy Sunday afternoon. This recipe makes enough for four servings, which I packed up to take for a week’s worth of lunches. Love it with a bread (or gluten-free) roll.
