Pea and Ham Soup

This recipe is ideal for off-cuts of ham, and is really easy to prepare – just chuck the ingredients in a pan and let it simmer. Adapted from Quick and Easy.

Prep time: 10 mins. Total cooking time: 1 – 1 ½ hours


 250g frozen peas
 1 can chickpeas
 1.5 litres chicken stock
 1 onion, chopped
 2 garlic cloves, crushed
 ½ – 1 teaspoon dried mixed herbs
 4 tablespoons parsley, chopped


 Add all ingredients to a large pan and bring to the boil.
 Reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 1 – 1 ½ hours or until peas are soft and pulpy.
 Garnish with a sprig of flat-leaf parsley if desired.

 As an alternative you can use 2-4 rashers thick bacon.

>> This soup goes great with a bread roll, cheese toastie or cheese puffs.
