A Simple Ham And Vegetable Soup

I cooked this on Friday, using the leftover vegetables from the fish pies, I cooked earlier in the week. The recipe was based on this soup from Nigella.

I started by chopping up an onion, two garlic cloves and a fresh chilli and sautéing them in olive oil until they were soft.

I then added a diced carrot, two diced sticks of celery, one bubble of some of Waitrose’s ham hock, some chicken stock and some water.  I brought it to the boil and then simmered it for an hour.

After that, I added a few sliced courgettes, half a cup of frozen peas, a small tin of three bean mix and a generous handful of pasta and then cooked it for ten minutes, until it was nice and hot.

The only problem, was that I made it a bit thick, but it tasted good.

I think next time, I’ll make a bigger pot of it and work out how to freeze it for later.

Delia has a page here about freezing soups and a whole list of soups.  But beware, the page is full of annoying adverts.
