A very easy but delicious soup, which uses more vegetables than the traditional Pea & Ham soup. I puree the soup before putting the meat back in, but its fine if you don't. In fact if you don't puree, you get to taste more of the individual vegetable flavours. If you like it meatier, just put in more bacon bones!
- Chop all vegetables and put all the ingredients in a large saucepan and bring to the boil.
- Simmer briskly until the peas have dissolved and meat is falling off the bacon bones. (Approx 2 1/2 hours.)
- Remove the bones, remove meat from the bones, chop and put back in the saucepan. (You can puree the vegetable mix before putting the meat back in if you desire a more traditional"Pea& Ham Soup".)
