Serves 8

What You Need:

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 white onion, diced
4 cloves garlic, minced
3 stalks celery, diced
2 carrots, diced
1-1/2 cups dry split peas
2 tablespoons minced thyme
1/4 cup chopped parsley
3 tablespoons nutritional yeast
1/2 tablespoon salt
1/2 tablespoon coarse black pepper
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1-1/2 cups finely shredded kale
1/4 cup whole-leaf dulse seaweed, ripped into 1-inch pieces (applewood-smoked preferred)
Fresh parsley, for garnish (optional)
Lemon wedges, for garnish (optional)
Gluten-free or whole-grain bread, for serving (optional)
