A vibrant pea soup recipe with the added indulgence of creamy blue cheese and meaty ham hock.

Ingredients

  • 1 litre fresh chicken stock
  • 650g frozen peas
  • 50g gorgonzola dolce, plus more to serve
  • A squeeze of lemon juice, optional
  • A handful shredded ham hock, to serve
  • Crusty bread to serve

Method

  1. Heat the chicken stock in a pan, then add the peas and simmer for 5 minutes. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper, then stir in the gorgonzola. Leave to cool, then whizz to a smooth soup with a stick blender.
  2. Heat through, taste and adjust the seasoning – you may want to add a squeeze of lemon juice.
  3. Garnish with the ham hock and a little more crumbled gorgonzola, then serve with plenty of crusty bread on the side.
