    mmmmmm yum soup,

    I love pea and ham soup of course being a vego I make a vegie version for me and a ham one for everyone else.

    I dont really have any measurements I just add stuff LOL,

    In a big soup pot I fill it up about half way with water I then add about 4 decent size bacon hocks ( I use hocks because they have more meat on them than the bacon bones )
    and about 1 pkt of yellow split peas
    and let that come to the boil I turn it to simmer and leave it for a couple of hours,

    I then add about 3 or 4 large onions sliced fairly thinkly and heaps of carrot again sliced really thincklyand let that cook for another couple of hours,

    toward the end I scoop out the bacon hocks and pull the meat off and add it back to the soup, I also may add some vegetable stock for flavour if it needs it, I usually use Vegeta.

    For the vegetarian version I do the same thing I judt dont add the bacon hocks and I add a little more stock as it really needs the flavour but I do that about half way through cooking the vegies so that I can get a true taste and add just a small amount at a time so as it does not become over powering.

    keep checking the water as it is cooked for a while and does need topping up.

    I love this soup its soooo yummy and gets even better the next day or so and is easy to freeze.

    Enjoy!

    Potato, Leek & Bacon soup...
    6 potatos chopped
    4 leeks chopped
    4 1/2 cups vegetable stock (or chicken)
    1 clove garlic crushed
    1/4 tsp nutmeg
    150gm/ml? light sour cream

    *optional for meat eaters*
    150gm bacon - I use short cuts and fry them first and then slice them up & chuck them in for extra flavour

    Pop it all in on low for around 6-8 hours. In the end take it out & put it through a blender to whatever consistency you choose. I like a very creamy soup so I go crazy with the blender. Then pop it all back in the SC on low. Right before serving, stir through the sour cream & top with chopped chives. I serve it with sliced turkish bread grilled with olive oil. Yum.

    Sometimes I add the sour cream in after I served up the soup in bowls. I just popped a spoonful in the middle of the soup. I also added in a zucchini to have more vege's & it basically disappeared...didn't see it again

    1/2 butternut pumpkin
    2 potatoes

    Cut all the veges into chunks, throw in SC with the stock. Cook on low all day and then puree. Can stir through 1/2 carton of cream at the end also.
