Get ready for the ultimate winter warmer. It’s a British staple for all the family and 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 soup with ham 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, and are high in fibre and protein, providing a solid source of vitamin C! 

This is a super quick soup recipe that can be rustled up in rapid time – making it an ultra-convenient dinner. We’d recommend pairing with a hearty, rustic bread roll to dunk in your pea soup with ham. So whenever you feel the urge to munch a soup-er meal, look no further than the Captain’s perfect pea and ham soup.
