  • 1-2 scoops Bulk Nutrients Pea Protein Isolate
  • 2 onions
  • 2 carrots
  • 300 grams split peas
  • 300 grams frozen peas
  • 1 tsp garlic powder or 1 crushed garlic clove
  • 1 chicken or vegetable stock cube
  • 3 and a half cups hot water

  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. In a large pot, sauté onions (chopped) and garlic till softened.
  2. Add diced carrot and cook for another 2 minutes.
  3. Dissolve stock cube in 1/2 cup of water and add to the pot. Also add the remaining water and split peas.
  4. Cook for 45 minutes on a low heat or until your split peas are well softened.
  5. Add frozen peas and cook for another 15 minutes. With a hand blender place into the soup and blend to a smooth soup, or if you like chunky you can leave as is! Add ham hock and simmer for an additional 10 minutes.
  6. Add pea protein and stir through until well combined.

To serve, we’re fans of crusty bread, croutons, spring onion, sesame seeds, chilli, bacon pieces etc.

* We used a pre-cooked and shredded ham hock available in the meat section of your supermarket
