Soup Help

It's going to be a couple of drab, dank and miserable days coming up so I thought I'd make me some soup. I've got a nice double smoked ham hock on the go in the stock pot. Now I just need some ideas of what to put with it,spilt green peas, lentils,white beans, all of them or none of the above. Or something completelt different. What say ye?

I'd use the white beans, and add some greens to it. Maybe cabbage, Chard or spinach. Put some potatoes in to thicken it up a bit.

I've used a 15 bean mix I buy at the store for chili and casseroles. Soak them overnight first and you've got enough variety to make you look like a gourmet.

It's hard to beat a nice pot of split pea soup. Here's a recipe.

I'll vote for lentils. Toss in an onion, nicely chopped and a few carrots for color & flavor. Throw in a handful of chopped celery at the last minute. Keeps it crunchy. You'll be set for meals for a while.
