Collard Green & Black-Eyed Pea Soup

January/February 2008

Your rating: None Average: 3.9 (79 votes)

Antioxidant-rich collard greens and fiber-packed black-eyed peas have a starring role in this nutritious soup. There's no need for loads of ham or salt pork—just a small amount of bacon gives it a wonderful smoky flavor. You can skip the bacon and substitute vegetable broth for chicken broth for a great vegetarian dish.



READER'S COMMENT:
"We loved this soup but I would highly recommend taking Beano before eating it. The leafy greens and legumes can do a number on your digestive system! "

I made this soup again this year and the guest at my house sampled it until it was gone. I had to remake this soup 3 times because everybody wanted more and/or a second helping. Several guest wanted the recipe, but I refused! I told them "ancient chinese secret!"

I have made this soup two years in a row and love it. Everyone I have served it to has liked it: kids, men and women. I gave my dad a tablespoon sampling telling him he needed good luck for the year and he skeptically ate it and then when back for more. Definitely a good healthy recipe for getting your new years luck and prosperity going.

Yum! I added in some beet greens with the collards since they were on hand, omitted the bacon to make it vegetarian, and used garbanzo and navy beans instead of black eyed peas (what I had on hand). I also added a splash of balsamic which gave the flavor some more depth. This soup made my evening!
