Happy New Year! I wish you all a happy and healthy new year! This year Jake really wanted some collard greens and black eyed peas to celebrate the beginning of 2014. I decided to make a soup with both of them. This soup definitely hit the spot today. I had 3 bowls! At least it's healthy! :) :) :) I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
6 cups vegetable broth
2 cups water
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 sweet onion
1 can diced tomatoes
2 6oz cans tomato paste
1 diced tomato
1 large carrot sliced into small pieces
5-6 cups cleaned and chopped collard greens
1 16oz package of frozen black eyed peas.
6 diced red potatoes with skin
2 tbs salt (or more to desired taste)
1 tbs onion powder
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp basil
1 tsp cayenne pepper
In a large pot sauté garlic and onion on medium heat until slightly transparent. Add all other ingredients. Cook on medium heat until boiling then cook on low heat for 1 1/2-2 hours. Once the potatoes and carrots are tender it's done! Enjoy!
