Some say that black eye peas are a traditional New Year food. Whether a side dish or soup. They say it brings Good Luck?!
This is a quick cooking soup recipe and if you love black eyed peas you may enjoy it. You’ll need 2-15.5 ounce cans of black eyed peas drained and rinsed. In a soup pot add beef broth (16 ounces) 1 teaspoon corn starch and one cup of cold water bring to a boil, add 2 slices of bacon, 1/4 onion or shallots, salt and black pepper to taste, I also add one bay leaf. Reduce heat to medium low add drained black eye peas and cook 10 minutes stirring often. Remove bay leaf before serving in soup bowls.
Garnish with croutons, cheese, crackers whatever you prefer and enjoy!
Happy 2016 Everyone!
