Hammy Ham hock soup

My kids love this one. It takes a little while but it’s easy it’s a dinner or a rainy day lunch you can make while you’re busy. All you do is chop and leave.

Ham Hock soup 

4x celery stalks

2x carrots

1 onion

3 cloves of garlic

Tablespoon of oregano

One ham hock

1 litre of water

1 litre of veggie stock

400g tin of tomatoes

1 red capsicum

1 cup of beans cut in 3rds

2/3 cup of Rotini or 1/4 cup of brown rice

2 x bay leaves

Sweat off the celery, carrot, garlic, onion & oregano until the onion softens add the stock and water and ham hock. And simmer on low for 2 hrs. covered.

During this two hours if there is any oil/ fat from the hock skim off the top as much as you can.

Once the 2 hours is up check that ham hock and it should be coming away from the bone. Remove the hock and set aside until cooled a little . While its cooling add the capsicum ( cubed) , beans, tinned tomato and rotini or rice.

Remove the meat from the bone and put back into soup.

Cook for 30 mins and you’re done!
