New Years Soup (Serves 4)
courtesy of Sara Boyd Smith

Black-eyed peas for luck, and collard greens for money - this New Year's soup is healthy, tasty, and bound to bring a great year!

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 small onion, chopped
2 carrots, peeled and sliced (You can use turnips too)
3 leaves collard greens, coarsely chopped
1 (14.5 ounce) can vegetable broth
1 (15 ounce) can black-eyed peas, rinsed and drained
1/2 cup quinoa
1 cup water
1 tablespoon cider vinegar, or to taste
salt and ground black pepper to taste

  1. Heat olive oil in a soup pot over medium heat; cook and stir garlic until it begins to brown, about 3 minutes.
  2. Add onion and carrots. Cook and stir until carrots begin to brown and onion becomes translucent, 7 to 8 minutes.
  3. Cook and stir collard greens into onion mixture until wilted, about 5 minutes.
  4. Pour vegetable broth and black-eyed peas into vegetables, bring to a boil, and reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer soup until vegetables are softened, 20 to 25 minutes.
  5. While soup is simmering, mix quinoa and water in a saucepan, bring to a boil, and reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer until the water has absorbed into the quinoa, about 10 minutes.
  6. Stir cooked quinoa into soup and simmer until collard greens are tender, about 10 more minutes. Stir cider vinegar into soup to taste and season with salt and black pepper.
