Spring Green Pea and Ham Soup

Serves 4 Prep Time 5 minutes   Cook Time 10 minutes   Rated:

As I keep adding to my site, I have started to analyse what should be on here that is stock standard and popular as far as food goes...and Pea and Ham soup did come up a lot in my searches. As much as I do love the good old pea and ham stodge, this is not that. This recipe is bright, fresh, can be served all year round with no worries and frankly, looks soooo much better than the traditional version. I hope you enjoy it too. Think of it as a light meal for after Christmas when you have leftover ham to spare, (rather than doing the whole slow cooked ham hocks thingo!) PRETTY. (I expect some Instagramhashtag #cookingwithtenina love on this one kids!)
