It’s the ultimate winter warmer. It’s a British staple for all the family. It’s the starter that will wow and whet your guests’ appetite in equal measure at your dinner party. It’s pea and ham soup! 
This recipe for pea and ham soup from Captain Birds Eye is brimming with tasty veg that’s good for your wellbeing, but the clue’s in the name as to what our favourite is in this delightful dish. Birds Eye Peas are frozen within only two and half hours of being freshly picked, meaning all that vital nutrition is safely stored for when you cook them up at home. They may be sweet, but believe us, our peas have reduced levels of sugar and fat, while they are high in fibre and protein, and provide a solid source of vitamin C!  
This frozen pea recipe can also be rustled up in rapid time meaning that it’s ultra-convenient as a quick dinner – we’d encourage you to find a hearty, rustic bread roll for dunking purposes. So whenever you feel the urge for a soup-er meal, look no further than the Captain’s perfect pea and ham soup.
