Sherried Pea Soup with Ham
Adding a bit of dry sherry and warm spices to a classic split-pea with ham soup takes the flavor up to another level.
Tip: Use purchased whole wheat croutons, or make them at home. For homemade croutons, preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray; set aside. Cut up whole wheat bread slices into 3/4- to 1-inch pieces; place on prepared baking sheet. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are golden, turning or stirring once halfway through baking time.
