Winter Warmer Recipes - Pea and Ham Soup


There is nothing like a nice steaming plate of Pea and Ham soup on a cold winters night! My crockpot is on with all the ingredients to deliver such a meal tonight!

Pea and Ham Soup
2 cups split peas
1 ham hock
1 onion
2 carrots
2 potatoes

Cut up the onion and carrots and potatoes and put all of the ingredients into a crockpot. Pour water over them until just covered and set on high. You may need to add extra water so keep an eye on it.

When the ham is coming off the bone, remove the hock and take the meat off, add back into the pot and either serve chunky or whizz till your happy with the consistency.

Serve with crusty bread.

There are some really yummy recipes including Budget Busters and Family Favs in the there is no reason to be stuck for something to make tonight!


  1. Gilly, that looks yummy. Got to love winter for the warm yummy food we can have and Yeah for the crockpot/slowcooker..

  2. Mmmm, soup!
    I don't eat ham, but we tart up our pea soup with lots of ginger, lime and coriander. Yummy :-)
    Off to thaw some soup for lunch - the sooner I eat what's in the freezer, the sooner we can make some more :-)

  3. Gilly looks so comfy!!! Winter, is good for comfort food if nothing else!
