On a cold day, nothing beats a warm meal. Give this slow cooked pea and ham soup a try this winter season!

With plenty of protein and veggies inside it, this pea and ham soup is bound to be one the kids enjoy, as well as being super nutritious!

Got leftovers? Chuck it in a container and refrigerate for later! (hint: heat it up and put it in a thermos, makes an excellent on-the-go meal or lunchbox filler!)

Serve this with your choice of breads, rice, or whatever else you feel might spice up the meal!
