Simple Pea and Ham Soup

This has to be the easiest soup ever. I’m not even exaggerating! And not only is it simple, it tastes absolutely fantastic and is done in about 20mins. It is so tasty and perfect for chilly days, like today where the temperature didn’t rise above about 3ºc. I know it’s the end of February which is why I wasn’t prepared to make something to warm my insides and it’s also the reason why I love this recipe so much. I had all the ingredients at home without even planning it. Spontaneity makes life and food even better then it already is!

Simple Pea and Ham Soup (Serves 2-3)

1tbsp olive oil

1 onion, diced

300ml chicken/vegetable stock

500g frozen peas

salt and pepper

100g shredded ham (I used leftovers from a fillet we had for dinner but you could use some from a packet if you need to)

  • Heat the oil in a medium pot/casserole dish and fry the onion over a medium heat until softened.
  • Pour in the stock and frozen peas and bring to the boil.
  • Put a lid on it and turn the heat down to low. Simmer for about 10mins or until the peas are cooked.
  • Take a few spoonfuls of the peas out of the pot and then blitz the rest with a stick blender. Add the whole peas back in and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Ladle into bowls then top with ham.
