Notes
I like using frozen peas as I know they are fresher and void of preservatives or other icky ingredients. The beauty of this soup is it fool proof...if it is too thick for your liking add a bit more water or some coconut milk. If you miss the ham flavor add crispy bacon! If you eat dairy, sour cream is delicious too! If you would like more plant based protein add ½ cup of hemp seeds! Adding kelp just adds more nutrients like iodine to this soup. You can puree' the strip in the blender or take it out it doesn't change the flavor. Please use organic when you can.
