Vegan Split-Peas Cream Soup

 
If you follow my blog, you probably know by now that I like soups.  I do have a few favourites and this soup is one of them, actually,  not just mine, but my family's too. 

The soup is very easy to make using simple ingredients that you might already have at home, and very economical not to mention, good for you. Did I mentioned, it’s vegan too?

Enjoy!
