We love warm soups and had never made a black-eyed pea soup, so we enjoyed the taste of this one with the good combination of all the flavors included in the soup. I just added 1 small chopped carrot to the onion, celery, green pepper and the 2 minced garlic cloves. I mixed all these ingredients with my hand blender, then added 4 cups of the cabbage and the blaked-eye peas at the end, and simmered for 15 minutes. Good recipe idea Chef, and good
luck in the Dining on a Dollar Contest.
We really enjoyed this tasty, quick and easy to make soup. It made for a great lunch on a very cold winter day. It had a nice flavor, great texture, was well seasoned and the combination of vegetables, herbs and spices was spot on. It was a very comforting and satisfying dish. Really great use of contest ingredients, good luck in the contest.
