Pea, potato and kale soup
Hello all! I had a great morning, continued with my cleaning spree and organized my baking and utensil drawers. The husband wasn’t coming home for lunch. So after the cleaning I made a black-eyed pea and sweet potato soup. It was nice and thick and the Kale add the much added grit t it!
Pea, potato and kale soup!
1 cup black-eyed peas
1 medium sweet potato cut into cubes
2 cups Kale cut into bite size pieces (My pieces weren’t torn well enough so it was a lil’ annoying eating them but nothing can beat its taste and texture)
1 medium onion chopped
1 clove garlic minced
1 tbsp ginger minced
½ cup canned diced tomatoes
2 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp red chili powder
3 cups chicken stock
Salt and pepper
1 tsp EVOO
To 1 tsp EVOO, add the onion and garlic. When nice and translucent add the sweet potato. Sprinkle some salt and pepper and 1 cup of the stock. Cover and cook until the potato is tender!
Once the potato is cooked, add the black-eyed peas, tomatoes and mix. Follow this by adding the spices.
Blend it with an immersion blender or a normal blender. Make sure you have some chunky pieces.
Once the desired consistency is reached add the remaining stock. Let it come to a boil and then add the kale. Cover and simmer for about 5 minutes and the soup is ready.
Serves about 2-3
P.S. I added some turmeric powder to add soe vibrancy to the soup, it was looking a lil’ dull.
