Sources for #WFPB recipes and support

There are any number of good sources for recipes, and, as time goes by you learn quickly enough how to adapt almost any recipe...

Here is one for split pea soup that was born from adopting a very standard recipe:

Split Pea Soup

Great basic recipe for vegan split pea soup, adapted for #WFPB, by leaving out the oil.


2 onions, cut fine
4 chilis, cut fine
1 jalapeno, cut fine
3 bay leaves
3 cloves garlic, minced
4 cups dried split peas
1/2 cup barley
1-1/2 tbsp liquid aminos
8-10 cups of vegetable or mushroom bouillon 

3 carrots, chopped
3 stalks celery, chopped
3 potatoes, diced
1/2 cup chopped parsley
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
optionally other vegetables, such as parsnips, or turnips etc.


In a large pot over medium high heat, sauté the onion, bay leaf and garlic with a little bit of bouillon for 5 minutes, or until onions are translucent.

Add the peas, barley, liquid aminos and water.
Bring to a boil and reduce heat to low.
Simmer for 2 hours, stirring occasionally.

Meanwhile, cut up the veggies.
Add more water as needed for the right thickness.

Add the carrots, celery, potatoes, parsley, basil, thyme and ground black pepper.
Simmer for another hour, or until the peas and vegetables are tender.

In short, options galore.
