  • 500 g of dried peas
  • 2 leeks
  • some celeriac (to your own taste) or some green celery
  • 2 carrots
  • 1 big onion
  • 200 g of smoked bacon
  • water
  • olive oil or butter
  • pepper and salt


  1. Melt butter in a big pot (or heat the oil)

  2. Cut the vegetables and meat into small pieces. Fry the bacon and onion.

  3. Add the cut vegetables and let the simmer for a while. Just take care you don't burn them. Wash the peas in cold water and add to the pot. Add water until vegetables are covered.

  4. Bring to the boil and lower the heat. Let the soup boil till the peas are soft.

  5. Blend the soup until it looks smooth. Season with pepper and salt. Add more water is the soup is to thick.

  6. If you like you can serve the soup without blending it. Serve the soup big slices of bread (home made or not)
