  • Summary

    Nothing beats a hot bowl of soup on a cold day. This split pea soup is bright and cheery, very filling, and oh so delicious! The smoked paprika gives this soup amazing flavor, while the spinach adds a punch of greens to keep things fresh and healthy. Healthful Hints Split peas are an outstanding source of the mineral molybdenum. Molybdenum is one of those minerals we don’t hear about too often, but certain studies show that molybdenum may help in the prevention of anemia. These yellow gems are also packed with fiber, which means they will keep you feeling full for longer and thereby help to balance blood sugar as well. This also means that all that fiber is going to help with the lowering of cholesterol by binding to bile containing cholesterol and removing it through the digestive process. All in all, split peas are a great food to start including in your diet!
