Made this delicious meal today while listening to the 2012 Rose Bowl game. A wonderful combination of flavors! Serve with brown rice or fat-free cornbread, with hot sauce on the side.
Makes 4 servings
1 package (10 ounces) frozen or fresh kale, chard, or collard greens
4 cups low-sodium vegetarian broth
2 packages (10 ounces each) frozen black-eyed peas, thawed and drained or
1 sixteen ounce package of dried black-eyed peas, rinsed and soaked for 8 hours
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 can (18 ounces) vacuum-packed unsweetened sweet potatoes, drained, rinsed, and chopped, or 2 cups cooked
A few dashes of liquid smoke
I prefer fresh kale but if you can only get frozen thaw frozen greens in a bowl of boiling water. Chop and combine with broth, black-eyed peas, garlic, sweet potatoes, and liquid smoke in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring often, then reduce heat and simmer for 20 to 30 minutes.
