Pea and Ham Soup

Submitted by Mouse 20 October 2009

Found this over on UKTV Food, used oregano instead of thyme as I have that growing in the garden. One of my friends rated this as better than the Covent Garden soup, which is her all-time favourite!



1 tbsp Butter, 2 Onions, finely chopped, 1 garlic clove, finely chopped, small handful of thyme leaves, 800g frozen peas, 1 ham bone, 1 litre vegetable, pork or chicken stock


1. Heat the butter in a large saucepan over a medium heat and add the onions, garlic, thyme and peas. Cook for 3-4 minutes, stirring constantly. 2. Add the ham bone and stock. 3. Bring to the boil and simmer for 1 hour. 4. Remove the ham bone; transfer the mixture to a blender and whiz until smooth. Serve immediately.
