Black Eyed Pea and Barley Soup

Happy New Year!

It is a tradition with my family to eat black eyed peas on New Years Day.

I've never been a fan of a bowl of plain ol' black eyed peas... I think that they taste like dirt. It was a joke growing up that we had "dirt" for dinner on new years day. I don't know that they really bring luck, but the hubs didn't eat any last year and his truck got stolen!  Coincidence, maybe... but I'm not taking any chances.

I like to make my black eyed peas more of a soup ... with lots of vegetables and the greens mixed in with the soup.

This soup is equally good with cannellini beans.

  5. Haha, taste like dirt! I don't know that I've ever tried black eyed peas but although I like beans, I prefer them with other foods too instead of digging into a big pile of them. :)

    This soup looks really tasty! And I like the addition of the sherry!

  6. Oh this sounds so good! Warm & comforting and way better than plain black eyed peas. I don't mind them, but they have to be in something or part of something.
    I have never actually had black eyed peas on New Year's Day - it wasn't a tradition my parents did, so I haven't picked up on it.
    I didn't know about your husband's truck. Yikes :(
