Pea & Ham Soup

Pea & Ham Soup is a great way to warm up on a cold autumn night.  Already a good source of fibre the addition of the beans and chickpeas means that we have added that protein that is going to help you feel satisfied and stay satisfied for longer. If you don’t have lardons don’t worry you can use bacon or ham hock.

This is such a simple soup to make, taking only about 15 – 20 mins to make.  It also freezes really well, so make this big batch and freeze a few portions so you always have a healthy supper ready in minutes when you are stuck.
