Split pea and ham soup

3 WeightWatchers Points: Split Pea & Ham soup

Servings 6


  • 1 onion roughly chopped
  • low-calorie cooking spray
  • 1 large carrot sliced
  • 1 stick of celery chopped
  • A few leaves of spring greens optional
  • 200 g shredded ham hock
  • 350 g split green peas rinsed
  • 1.8 ltr chicken stock from a cube


  • Spray a large saucepan with the cooking spray and cook the onion on a medium heat until it begins to soften. You don't need to be too precise about the chopping, as it's all going in the blender later.
  • Add the carrot and celery and continue to fry for a few minutes until starting to soften.
  • Then add all the other ingredients.
  • Bring to the boil, cover and simmer for about 45 minutes, until the lentils are soft. Cool slightly then blend in batches and serve straight away.
