Adapted from: "Vegetable Soups from Deborah Madison's Kitchen". "A homey Sunday-night sort of soup that makes no pretensions to being hoppin' John or any other southern dish but simply a bowl of delicious nourishment. I've found that frozen black-eyed peas take as long to cook as dried ones that have been soaked--a good hour and a half. Brown butter mixed with roasted sesame oil has a vaguely meaty flavor, which isn't detectable as either butter or sesame." "Smoked Spanish paprika stands in for the smoky flavor of bacon or ham."
I whipped this up after my husband decided to try peanut butter and sour cream together on a spoon. He liked it so much he came to me and asked, "Are there any recipes that use peanut butter and sour cream together?" This is similar to some refrigerated pie fillings but I made it sugar free. I also didn't find any recipes that used cream cheese/neufchatel, cool whip AND sour cream together. It turned out great. Use as a pudding topped with fresh fruit or as a dip for fresh fruit.
