Collards and Black-eyed Pea Soup
Recipe By :adapted slightly from Lorna Sass
Serving Size : 6 Preparation Time :0:00
Amount Measure Ingredient --
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
cups water -- or vegetable stock
cups black-eyed peas -- picked over and rinsed
bunch collard greens -- (about 1 pound)
large onions -- peeled and chopped
ribs celery -- finely chopped
cloves garlic -- peeled and minced
1 1/2 teaspoons dried thyme --
pinch cayenne -- or crushed red pepper flakes
salt -- or miso to taste
liquid smoke flavoring
Pressure Cooker Directions:
1. Bring the water and peas to a boil in the
pressure cooker. Meanwhile, wash the collards thoroughly. Discard
thick stems and discolored leaves. Chop the remaining stems and leaves
into 1-inch strips. Add the collards, onions, celery, garlic, 1/2 tsp
thyme, and cayenne to the cooker.
2. Lock the lid into place. Over high heat, bring to high pressure.
Lower the heat to maintain the pressure at high and cook for 10 minutes.
Reduce pressure with a quick-release method. Remove the lid. If the
peas are not quite done, return to high pressure for another minute or two.
3. Stir in salt or miso to taste, reserved thyme, and liquid smoke flavoring and
cook for about 15 minutes more.
Standard Stovetop Directions: In a large soup pot, proceed as directed in
step one. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer, covered, until the
peas are tender, about 45-55 minutes. Follow step 3.
This makes 6 large servings.

NOTES : A combination of soul-food favorites makes for an earthy and very
satisfying dish. It quickly thickens upon standing; thin it with water or
stock as needed. And don't forget to pass the hot sauce.
