This is a vegetarian recipe (my roommate likes it with organic veggies) but it would also be good with some chunks of ham mixed in. You could add ham to the recipe, or maybe just spinkle some bacon on top. With or without ham, this soup is delicious!

I wish I had the price calculations for this soup because its very cheap. Most of the ingredients come from the pantry but, the peas, potatoes, celery and carrots only cost a few bucks. This recipe isn’t a very quick meal, but its worth the wait. The clean-up is very easy and the recipe makes enough for left-overs. Perfect for a mid-week dinner.
