Pea & Ham Soup


​Ham gives the sweet, slightly grainy peas a salty tang in this classic soup. 

Prep Time: 2 hours


500g bacon or ham bones

2 cups green split peas

1 onion, finely chopped

2 carrots, peeled and diced

3 litres cold water

2 cloves garlic, peeled

1 sprig of thyme 

black pepper

Croûtons ​


​1. Put all the ingredients into a large saucepan. Bring slowly to the boil then partly cover and simmer for about 1½ hours or until the peas are tender. 

2. Remove the bay leaf and the bacon bones. Cut any meat off the bones and dice it.

3. Purée the soup with a wand blender or in a food processor and adjust the seasoning. If it is too thick, add a little water. Return the soup to the pan and the meat to the soup. 

4. Reheat and serve with Croûtons.
