So Creamy Vegetarian Split Pea Soup

This recipe is actually vegan (no milk or animal products).  I was surprised at how deliciously creamy it was.  I tweaked the recipe by using sweet potatoes instead of white potatoes for a slightly healthier, vitamin-packed soup.

I found this recipe while searching for soy-free vegetarian meals.

You may not know it but approx 91% of all soy grown in the US is Genetically Modified (GMOs) and I am VEHEMENTLY against GE foods.
