Pea soup is pretty hearty so a large salad with grilled vegetables could be nice; or grilled cheese sandwiches
The Swedes eat thin pancakes with their pea soup (every Thursday!). It's a surprisingly good combo. Thin crepe-like, eggy pancakes with lingonberry jam.
What about paninis with caramelized onions, gruyere, prosciutto, and mushrooms?

Small biscuits with thin-sliced ham and a dab of brown mustard or honey mustard. If you're in a rush, a tube of ready-made biscuits from the dairy case is fine: just use a small cookie cutter or the rim of a smaller glass to cut down the biscuits to smaller size. Re-shape any scraps to form more biscuits.
I the earlier years in my professional career, cut up hotdogs or sausage and potatoes, made a very harty meal. A crusty roll finished meal.
Cabbage rolls or stuffed peppers - a nice eastern European dinner. Some crusty bread and all is OK
I like to pair it with my "Chicken Cordon Bleu melt" fresh sourdough slices spread with garlic butter and grilled with melted cheese, grilled thin sliced ham, crispy chicken tenders and a little honey dijon mustard! mmmmm $8.99 baby!! lol
For me it has always been Corn Bread or Corn Bread muffins!!! Yum...
Corn bread is good. I add a sm can of diced ortega chilis and a cup to cup & half shredded cheddar cheese

A meat 'hand pie' Pasty.
Thin-sliced ham on hot biscuits with a mustard-mayo-horseradish schmear
As noted above, pea soup is pretty filling by itself - especially with some nice ham hock in it.
Therefore I would suggest some fresh out of the oven bread. Nothing gets your taste buds going better than the aroma of fresh bread. You can also consider nan bread or even pizza bread with just a sprinkle of olive oil.
