I made this in the slow cooker. I thought it turnde out pretty good, although my husband thought it was just alright.
Collard Green & Black-Eyed Pea Soup
From EatingWell: January/February 2008
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.

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.
This was awesome!! I also forgot to add the bacon but did try it as the recipe called for and then added some basalmic vinegar and found it was even better!! This is definetly a keeper!!
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!
