Serve a generous portion of soup in a deep bowl, place some ham cubes in the center and garnish with a small spoon full of chive sour cream.
- Ham and sour cream
Cut the ham into small cubes (about 1cm cube) and sprinkle with maple syrup. Place in the oven, covered, for about 30 minutes.
In a mixing bowl, combine the sour cream and chives.
In a sauce pot on medium heat with a little olive oil, sweat the onions and leeks for 3 minutes, then add the carrots, garlic, thyme and bay leaf. Cook for 2 more minutes. Add the peas and the stock and then simmer for about an hour. Transfer to a blender and blend until you reach the desired consistency. Add the cream and season to taste.
Rinse the peas and strain them. Finely chop the carrots and leeks. Finely mince the garlic and thyme. Slice the onions and finally slice the chives.
For the soup to take less time to cook, you can always soak the beans over night in advance.
