Vegan Peasoup

Peas (Pisum Sativum L.) and lentils (Lens Culinaris L.) have been cultivated at least since Neolithic times, if not further back, and processed into stew or soup. They contain many vitamins, minerals and dietary fibres as well as vegetable proteins. This soup is completely vegan, enriched with the flavour of typical soup vegetables and smoked salt. No wonder that such soups were often served, as they fed a large family.
