ooooooooo we love Pea & Ham soup !
chop your ham into small pieces
finely chop one large onion
finely chop 1-2 cloves of garlic
fry these together
when the onions are soft add 1 pint of chicken stock
cook until it simmers add ground black pepper - no need for salt enough in ham
Now for you peas ? I usually add 1 packet of frozen peas or 1 large tin of mushy peas - it all depends what I have in - so just add your peas - if not pre-cooked just follow the instructions, cook them off, then add.
cook until this simmers
blend the whole lot to a texture that you like - I dont mind an odd bit of ham
now and then, sometimes I even leave a small amount to throw in at the end so its a bit more chunky
You might also like to swirl in some cream - so yummy !
Serve with chunky granary bread............ummmmm
off to see what I have in my cupboard now...
