Smoked Ham and Veggie Soup

December 30, 2013

After all the heavy holiday eating, this hearty soup packed with healthy veggies was just what we needed!

Makes 4-6 servings
2 Tbs olive oil
1 onion, chopped
3 garlic cloves, chopped
3 carrots, chopped
2 celery stalks, chopped
3 small potatoes, chopped
1 sprig rosemary, chopped
4 sprigs thyme
1 Tbs SplenDishes Super Tuscan Blend
1-14 oz can black eyed peas
1-14 oz can diced tomatoes
1 1/2 cups smoked ham, chopped
1 cup dry white wine
8 cups homemade stock from ham bone (you can also use chicken stock)
Salt to taste
In soup pot, heat oil in medium high heat. Sauté onions, carrots, celery, potatoes and garlic until onions are tender (about 5 minutes). Stir in Super Tuscan, a pinch of salt and fresh herbs (leave the thyme whole and pull out twigs before serving). Add wine and reduce for about 5 minutes. Add black eyed peas and tomatoes, stirring to combine. 
Pour in stock and add ham.
Bring to a boil, then simmer for about 40 minutes. Season again with salt and pepper if needed.
You can also do this in the crockpot!
