  • 2
    pork knuckles, chopped roughly
  • 65
  • 2
    onions, chopped

    large leeks, washed and sliced into rings

    chicken stock cubes, crumbled in 500 ml of water
  • 2
    bay leaves

    smoked Russian sausages, sliced

Rinse the peas and cook in the water until soft. Meanwhile, brush the pork knuckles with half the oil and grill until the meat begins to brown and the bone darkens. Heat the remaining oil in a large pot and sauté the onions, leeks and celery until softened. Add the cooked peas and their water, stock and bay leaves and bring to the boil. Add the grilled pork knuckles and cover. Reduce the heat and simmer until the meat is soft and comes away from the bones easily. Remove the bones if desired. Mash the peas slightly with a potato masher. Add the sliced sausage to the soup. Simmer gently until sausages are hot. Thin with boiling water if necessary. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve garnished with fresh parsley. Makes 4,5 litres soup.
