Various forms of pea soup can be found in myriad different food cultures across Europe, Scandinavia, North America and even as far away as Australia. In fact, pea soup has been enjoyed since ancient Greece and Rome. No wonder, because this hearty soup is filling, inexpensive, and easy to make.
Thanks to the Instant Pot, we can now make traditional pea soup in a fraction of the time. Instead of soaking the peas overnight, they'll be perfectly cooked in minutes. Instead of using a whole ham shank to extract flavor and pieces of meat, diced ham can be used in this recipe. In fact, it's a great way to use up leftover holiday ham from Christmas or Easter and turn it into a whole new dish.
This version has extra flavor with the addition of fresh thyme as well as prepared English mustard and even some beer. It tastes best with warm, crusty bread to soak up every bite of soup. Pea soup also freezes very well. Pack any leftovers in airtight, custom-sized containers for a hearty meal every time.
