Split peas give this soup a bit of texture as well as they take away a bit of the sweetness of the pumpkin. Works for me, I'm not too keen about sweet food for supper! Great recipe!

It was great on a cold fal evening. I used green split peas, veggie burger instead of salt beef and asafotida instead of the bitters. Used a pressure cooker to cook it all. Everybody was pleased.

Definitely the way to enjoy a vegetarian soup! The flavor is great and it leaves you wanting more.
