Want some good luck for the New Year?  

I do! I do!

I made Lucky Soup for New Year’s, and I’ve been eating it for the last few days (trying for all the luck I can get!).

Did you know that in the South, it’s believed that eating black-eyed peas and collard greens on New Year’s Day ensures good luck for the year ahead.  This soup can be eaten all winter long due to its simple and soothing qualities packed with nutrients.  Lucky Soup also balances out the sweet tooth (and after the holidays, it is surely needed!)

 Lucky SoupIngredients:½ medium yellow onion1  garlic clove, minced

1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil

2 carrots, chopped

1 bunch of collard greens , stems removed and chopped into bite-size pieces (1 cup)

2 cups cooked black-eyed peas (2 15 oz. cans, drain, and rinse)

1/2  Tbsp. chopped fresh oregano (or use dried)

3 cups of vegetable broth

Sea salt and freshly ground pepper

 

Directions:

In a soup pot or Dutch oven over medium heat, sauté onion and garlic in olive oil for 3 minutes.  Add carrots and sauté for 2 minutes.

Add chopped collard greens into pot along with black-eyed peas and oregano.

Add vegetable broth, bring to boil, cover, reduce heat and simmer 20-25 minutes.  Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Remove from heat and serve.

Serves 2-4
