‘Soup’er Sunday Green Pea Soup

Categories: 'Soup'er Sunday and Recipes.

~ I’m a slow food lover and have been making different soups and stocking up the freezer.   This recipe comes out just like a certain condensed pea soup and it was delicious but the best part is it doesn’t have all the added salt.

Categories: 'Soup'er Sunday and Recipes.
