Happy New Year!
It is a tradition with my family to eat black eyed peas on New Years Day.
I’ve never been a fan of a bowl of plain ol’ black eyed peas… I think that they taste like dirt. It was a joke growing up that we had “dirt” for dinner on new years day. I don’t know that they really bring luck, but the hubs didn’t eat any last year and his truck got stolen! Coincidence, maybe… but I’m not taking any chances.
I like to make my black eyed peas more of a soup … with lots of vegetables and the greens mixed in with the soup.
This soup is equally good with cannellini beans.
