I make a big batch of soup at the beginning of each week – just heat up for lunch and you’re good to go.

I just love Split Pea and Ham Soup – something about adding smoked ham (or bacon!) to a soup makes it even tastier.

Ingredients:

1 tbsp olive oil (you can use butter but I love cooking with olive oil)
3 carrots, peeled and chopped
1 stalk celery, shopped
1 large onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 1/2 cup green split peas, rinsed
2 cups chopped smoked ham
8 cups chicken stock
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon oregano
1/4 teaspoon marjoram
1/4 teaspoon thyme
1 bay leaf
Salt to taste
