Split Pea & Ham Soup
400g split yellow peas (or green, or 200g split peas & 200g frozen)
1 litre ham or chicken stock
1 stick celery
1 small onion
1 clove of garlic
1 handful finely chopped cooked ham
Roughly chop the vegetables and simmer gently in the stock with the split peas for about an hour with the lid on. If using frozen peas add for the last 5 minutes of cooking time only. Liquidise and stir in the ham.
This soup thickens up when cooled and you may wish to add a little milk to loosen it up when reheating.
