  1. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat, and saute the onion and garlic until tender.
  2. In a large pot, mix the onion mixture, potatoes, carrots, and split peas. Pour in the vegetable broth. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer 1 hour.
  3. In a blender or food processor, blend the tofu and spinach until creamy, and mix into the pot. Season with basil, salt, and pepper. Continue cooking 1 hour. If the soup becomes too thick, add water. Serve hot and enjoy.

This was a great vegitarian recipe! Even my finicky 3 year old loved it-after being forced to taste it. I ended cooking it a little longer and mashed the peas and potatoes with a potato masher b...

Absolutely delicious! I tend to read recipes to get a general idea of what I need, then work on a whim with few measurements and whatever substitutions intrigue me. I used frozen green peas inst...
