Split Pea Soup Taken Up a Notch So It Becomes Delicious Plus Has Extra Veggies

Made some really really yummy split pea soup tonight.  I'm too lazy to write the recipe right now - sorry!  But basically, you start out by sauteeing onions, garlic, celery, green peppers, and mushrooms with fresh thyme and salt.

Once good and cooked down, you add some halved cherry tomatoes, carrots, split peas, and vegetable broth, as well as some smoked paprika, more salt, and pepper.

Bring to a boil, cover, reduce to low, and simmer for about an hour, adding a whole bunch of chopped swiss chard during the last 15 minutes of cooking.

And you have something crazy flavorful and crazy healthy, especially if you add some garlic croutons as a garnish.
