Slow Roasted Ham & Pea Soup

Hello Fellow Nom Seekers!

I have discovered pre made slow roasted hickory flavoured ham at my deli and it's a life changer.  It made knocking up a comforting pot of ham and pea soup a cinch and it taste waaaay better than any canned version.


To make enough for eight bowls, you will need:

  • 500g of slow roasted ham.  I bought the Tilbaldi brand and according to their label, it's been slow roasted for 10 hours.  That's good enough for me. 
  • 11 cups of stock
  • 1.5 cup of dried peas and/or beans
  • mixed herbs - I used fresh tarragon
  • 1 carrot
  • 2 sticks of celery
  • 1 onion
  • tablespoon of olive oil
  • tablespoon of chia seeds (optional)




Method:
  • I soaked the peas and bean mix overnight then rinse and drain
  • Chop carrot, onion and celery then fry in pot with the oil
  • Once veggies and tarragon are soft, add the peas/bean mix and the liquid
  • Bring to boil then reduce heat to simmer for 45 mins
  • At this stage I roughly blitzed the soup with a stick blender
  • Roughly shred, chop the ham and add to the soup
  • Throw in the chia seeds if using.  Stir to distribute
  • Serve with a big chunk of bread and butter!
