1/1 Photo of Black-Eyed Peas With Mustard Greens and Rice
2 hrs 10 mins
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."
