Black Eyed Pea Soup -- recipe
Happy New Year, Everyone!
Maggie Dix’s Heart-Healthy Black-eyed Pea Soup
2 ½ cups dried Black-eyed Peas
2 tbsp. vegetable oil
1 tbsp. imitation bacon flavored pieces
1 handful of dried cholesterol-free (No Yolks) dumplings
Dash of salt (Garlic salt is good, too.)
Pepper to taste
Water to cover plus one inch. If water has cooked away, add water to cover plus 1/2 inch and bring back to a simmer before adding dumplings.
Place all ingredients except dumplings in a 2 quart pot. Cover with water. Simmer until peas are tender. Add dumplings. Cover and Simmer 10 more minutes. Serves four. If you believe in old wives's tales, double the recipe for New Years.
