Vegetable soup with ham - Grönsakssoppa med skinka

VEGETABLE SOUP WITH HAM
Grönsakssoppa med skinka

Let diced cheese melt in the hot soup and serve with croutons flavoured with oregano.

4 servings

½ onion
2 carrots
1 to 2 celery stems
5 oz smoked ham
2 tbsps butter or margarine
4 cups chicken bouillon
good ¾ cup green peas or
green beans
¼ tsp dried thyme
salt, pepper

Croutons:
4 slices white loaf bread
2 tbsps butter or margarine
½ tsp dried oregano

 
Chop the onion. Cut carrots, celery and ham in pieces. Melt the fat in a saucepan and sizzle onion, carrots and celery for about 5 minutes. Add ham and bouillon and boil the soup on low heat for about 15 minutes.

Dice the bread for the croutons. Melt the fat and add the oregano. Drip the fat over the bread, put it on a baking plate and toast them in the middle of the oven at 200C/gasmark 6 for 6 to 8 minutes or until crisp and golden.

Blend the peas or beans into the soup and flavour to taste with thyme, salt and pepper. Boil for a few minutes, flavour to taste again and serve with the croutons and more diced cheese if you wish. You can also flavour the soup with 1 to 2 tbsps chili sauce.

Enjoy!

Bella
