Spring pea soup with ham grissini

on 02/03/2009

I craved for a soup! The sun was shining through the window, the birds were singing & I felt alive & happy!
Spring was there! The sun was shining & I had enough of root vegetables! I needed something fresh & green!!! So, I came up with this soup!
Printable Recipe
Recipe: For 4 persons
1 large purple sweet onion, peeled & finely diced
250 gr potatoes, peeled, washed & finely cut up
800 ml of vegetable stock
250 gr of frozen peas ( it is not yet the season for fresh peas, what a pity!!!)
4 grissini
4 thin slices of smoked ham, like Parma ham
olive oil, a neutral one
1. Take a large cooking pot & heat up on medium high. Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil & heat up.
When hot & sizzling, add the finely sliced onion. Fry for about 5 minutes until tender. Stir frequently.
2. Now, add the diced up potatoes. Stir well. Fry for about 3 to 5 minutes.
3. Next, add the stock & bring to the boil. Heat up the heat on high. Boil until the potatoes are tender. With me, that took about 10 minutes.
4. Now, add the frozen peas & boil until tender & al dente. With me, that took about 8 minutes.
5. I did not sieve the soup because  I mixed the soup thoroughly  & so you keep the goodness in the soup!
6. You can add pepper if you like, but i didn’t do this because it tasted fab!!
7. Now, take your soup bowls & pour the soup in it. This is a thick soup!!
8. Take your grissini & wrap the ham tightly around it & place it over the soup bowl! This soup is lovely hot or cold!! Enjoy!!♥ Stay Tuned & subscribe by email! Join 1,800 email subscribers now!!! It is free!!!! Click the link here below to subscribe!!!

  4. dh says:

    I looked up grissini to see what it was,and it said a thin breadstick. Is that right? Your soup looks lovely. When we were little we were the only ones I knew who ate pea soup and to make it kid friendly my father used hotdogs instead of ham. Your pea soup looks lovely, I’ll have to try it, I’ve never made any of my own.

  5. Tomas says:

  6. duodishes says:

    OOOOh, ham grissini! Nice match for the soup.

  7. I am definitely starting to crave spring flavors even though there’s still snow outside (very unusual here in March). Your pea soup looks just lovely!

  8. Very luscious and delicious idea, Sophie! The soup is so vibrant and fresh-looking, and I love the crunchy addition of pencil-thin grissini and ham!

  9. Love the color of the pea soup. It does look like spring! I like the breadstick with ham – I could probably eat 10 of those.

  10. Sophie says:

    Thanks for those responses!dh: grissini means thin breadsticks, you are right! The smoked ham goes well with the bread stick & the peas!

  11. Hermana says:

    Thanks for this recipe, Sophie!!! It is easy yet so yummie:)!!!

  12. Beautiful color on the soup!And I must admit, I am completely addicted to grissini. I like to make them by running pizza dough through the fettucini cutter on my pasta roller.

  13. Ben says:

    Yes spring is in the air, can you smell it? I am so tired of this cold weather, hehe, but I think with a soup like this I can endure the few weeks left.

  14. Pam says:

    I love the color – what a beautiful soup.

  15. I too like the colors. I can imagine how inviting the aromas were while this was cooking!

  16. Lo says:

    OOh. Very nice. And that pea soup just wreaks of spring… fresh peas or not!

  17. Carolyn says:

    Actually, I got fresh peas at the market last week. They were amazing. But I love, love, love pea soup! And anything with ham or bacon, or both!

  18. I adore peas and pea soup and I think you pairing it with a ham wrapped grissini is a great idea!

  19. Helene says:

    I love soup any time, any day. This looks great.

  20. Maris says:

    I love just about any and every kind of soup. Pretty much the only qualification soup needs to have for me to like it, is that it needs to be called soup 🙂

  21. Reeni♥ says:

    This looks so good, Sophie! So light and refreshing. I’m ready for Spring!

  22. Kat says:

    mmmm… this looks lovely, peas are out for me right now, but I’m bookmarking this so I can come back to it in a couple of months. And the picture is so beautiful.
