I love a good homemade soup. Ever since i got my Tower Soup Maker they’ve been a staple part of mine and Joe’s weekday dinners trying out different combinations and flavours for a super easy quick-fix tea. Pea and Ham Soup is brilliantly traditional mix that’s light to the taste but warming none the less, and with only 5 ingredients it’s a real winner if the cupboards are looking a little bare.
What You’ll Need
1 Medium Potato
500g Frozen Peas
2 Pork Stock cubes
300g Cooked Ham
A smidgen of butter
– Peel and chop your onion and potato and dice the cooked ham
– Add your ham, onion, potato and peas to your soup maker
– Dissolve the stock cubes into 900ml of boiling water and tip into the soup maker along with your other ingredients.
– Add a knob of butter, pop on the lid and set your soup maker to 30 minutes
When the timer goes off, simply press the blend button until smooth and serve with crispy bacon bits, croutons and crusty bread! If you don’t have a fancy pants soup maker simply soften your onions with the butter in a pan, add the potato and stock and simmer until soft. Pop in your peas and boil for a few minutes longer before adding the ham, blending with a hand mixer (or stand alone blender) and pouring into a deep bowl!
Pea and Ham soup is Joe’s favourite and this one went down a storm! With a soup maker it’s just so easy to whip up a fresh and hearty dinner with absolutely no effort. No standing in front of the hob watching a pan for 20 minutes, just throw everything in, snap on the lid and let it works it’s magic! And the best part? There’s only one thing to wash up afterwards – sold!
