Pea and Ham Soup

Another soup recipe this week but the weather is still awful here and a nice, warm bowl of soup is just what I need in my lunch break :)

I've made pea and ham soup before, it's a soup that I really love, but this recipe is the quickest, easiest and tastiest I've ever had!
You will need:
1 onion
1 medium potato
800ml vegetable stock
400g frozen peas
2 tbsp fresh tarragon
200g premium lean ham
Salt and pepper
Peel and finely chop the onion and potato, dice the ham and finely chop the tarragon.
Place the onion, potato, stock and peas in a large pan and bring to the boil.  Reduce heat and simmer for 20 - 25 minutes until the potatoes are tender.
Stir in the tarragon and use a blender to make the soup smooth.
Stir in the ham, bring back to the boil and season to taste.
And there you have it, quick and easy pea and ham soup with a really refreshing flavour that is free with Slimming World on the extra easy plan.

I hope you'll have a go at this recipe.

Thanks for stopping by

That really does look like an easy one. I might give that a try over the weekend, thanks

Jo, that looks delicious! I'm going to give it a try if I can figure out the conversions!

I don't usually make soup with meat in it, but this looks great and very easy. I think The Mechanic would like this one :o)
