One gadget that is getting plenty of use at the moment here at Pinch of Nom is this Tower Hand Blender.

You’ll need one, or something like it to blend the soup.

You can get this on amazon.

This particular hand blender has a masher attachment included, which is perfect for making our Syn Free Creamy Mashed Potatoes

You’ll also need some dried peas. We use Quick Soak peas, which only need a couple of hours soaking time, so you can do this while you’re cooking the ham.

If you use regular dried peas, you will have to soak them overnight.

How do i make this Syn Free Pea and Ham Soup?

Step 1

Remove any fat from the ham and place in a large pan

Step 2

Add the carrots, onion, and celery (you can also add some small new potatoes if you like)

Step 3

Bring to the boil and simmer for approx 2 hours

Step 4

Soak the peas. If you’re using quick soak then they will be ready when the ham is cooked. If not then don’t forget to soak the peas overnight

Step 5

Remove the ham and veg from the stock

Step 6

Wash and drain the peas and add them to a clean pan

Step 7

Cut the cooked ham in half, and then chop one half into cubes (you can keep the other half for snacking on later!)
Chop the cooked veg into cubes

Step 8

If you prefer your soups chunky add 1/3 of the diced ham and veg to the pan with the peas, then add enough of the ham stock to cover the ingredients.

If you like a smooth soup add all the chopped up ham and veg at this point

Step 9

Add the stock cubes, bring up to the boil then simmer for around 20 minutes

Step 10

Check the peas are soft, then blend the soup with a stick blender until it’s smooth

Step 11

Add the remaining ham and veg and leave on the heat for a few minutes until it’s heated through. If the soup is a little thick just add a bit more water or ham stock until it reaches the desired consistency
