Recipe's preparation

    Pea and Ham Soup
  1. Place onion & garlic into TM bowl and chop for 5 sec, speed 7. Scrape down sides of bowl. Add oil and sauté for 5 min, varoma, speed 1

    Add carrots & celery chop for 5 sec, speed 7. Scrape down sides of bowl. Add 1lt water, stock paste, peas & pepper to the bowl.

    Place Bay Leaf,  Ham & Skin into TM basket.

    Lower basket into TM bowl careful! When you close the lid, make sure there is enough room near the hole for steam to escape during cooking!!

    Cook for 100ºC, 60 min, speed 1, replace MC with something to cover end of bone. (splatters)

    Remove the basket of meat with spatula and rest it on a tilt over the bowel and let it drain back into the soup, before removing basket completely.

    When cool enough separate meat from skin and fat. (I return the skin and fat to bowl as a thickener)

    With MC on 30 seconds, gradually increase to speed 9.

    Add chopped meat only (discard skin if not used as above, and bay leaf) back to soup and mix on 10 sec, No counter-clockwise operation, speed 5.

    Add remaining water to the 2 Lt. mark. 

    Cook soup for another 20 mins,100ºC, speed 1


Accessories you need



You will need to replace MC with something to cover lid hole and end of bone. (splatters) I use a large teacup.

I use the skin as an extra thickening agent.

    Any smoked ham will do, my last batch I used last years Christmas Ham which was frozen. But I would stay clear of the diced ham from the Deli Department, it has the consistancy of Fritz and disolves plus it has no flavor.

    Coles sell Tibaldi Slow Roasted Ham Hock Meat which makes it easier if you don't fiddle with meat on the bone.
