Pea and ham soup is an all-time favourite in our house… and it’s even easier when you make it in the slow cooker. Just pop everything in… let it do it’s delicious thing… and have dinner ready and waiting for you. Whoop whoop!

I’ve got this nice little routine going on at the moment where I make a batch of soup once a week, we have it for dinner that night and then the leftovers for lunches during the week (soups are such good freezer meals!). But don’t be fooled into thinking I’m super organised… I promise I’m absolutely not!!!!

And as well as soups, the other thing I’m loving at the moment is my slow cooker. I’ve been a bit slack with it the last few years, but now that I’ve got my super busy toddler racing round, the slow cooker is pretty much the most awesome thing ever.

Some of my favourite slow cooker dinners include:

    Usually I make a lentil and bacon bone soup over Winter and it’s delicious. I think I’d like to try your soup so could you tell me if a 3.5L slow cooker would be suitable to use? Thanks. Love your blog.
