"This delicious black-eyed pea soup is a favorite of ours especially when the weather is chilly. It's a great way to start the year with a kicked-up, spicy serving of black-eyed peas! Top with shredded cheese, parsley, green onions, and crumbled bacon to add even more flavor. " — CHEFSTEFANIE

This was delicious! I had only red curry powder and it added a real zip to the recipe. I threw in some leftover ham just to use it up. This is a cold-weather keeper!
This wasn't anything special. It was VERY tomatoey, which I wasn't a huge fan of. It was a good way to use up black eyed peas, but I wont make it again.
This is good!!! I was unsure of this combo of seasoning but we all loved it. Not spicy hot...just good. It doesn't taste like curry...it's just the combination that makes it good. I didn't even have bacon but I'll bet that makes it even better. We did sprinkle some sharp cheddar on top. Bet it would be good with cilantro sprinkled on top too.
Followed recipe as written, came out tasty enough. Didn't seem quite as substantial as I was hoping for, so I threw in a can of kidney beans and improved it a bit. I might try it again sometime and add in some pork sausage or maybe ham hocks. Overall - good enough for me, and I would recommend giving it a try. Thanks for sharing Steffanie!
This soup was a real hit with my husband & I. As he said, "I wasn't expecting much," I guess b/c it looked SO healthy and just like a thin soup, but it was delicious!! I will definitely make it again.
Great! I made it with a 1 pound bag of frozen peas and 2 cups of water. I also added 1/4 tsp. of cinnamon and simmered for about 2 1/2 hours.
Didn't have bacon, used ham pureed the onions and pepers before cooking. Used less water to make really thick and put over rice. Very good!
This soup was very good. The bacon, cheese, and green onions make the soup. The only change I would make is to use petite diced tomatoes or crushed. The tomato chunks were a little too big for my taste.
