  1. Heat olive oil in a soup pot over medium heat; cook and stir garlic until it begins to brown, about 3 minutes. Add onion and carrots. Cook and stir until carrots begin to brown and onion becomes translucent, 7 to 8 minutes. Cook and stir collard greens into onion mixture until wilted, about 5 minutes.
  2. Pour vegetable broth and black-eyed peas into vegetables, bring to a boil, and reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer soup until vegetables are softened, 20 to 25 minutes.
  3. While soup is simmering, mix quinoa and water in a saucepan, bring to a boil, and reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer until the water has absorbed into the quinoa, about 10 minutes. Stir cooked quinoa into soup and simmer until collard greens are tender, about 10 more minutes. Stir cider vinegar into soup to taste and season with salt and black pepper.

We really enjoyed this. I added a lot more broth just for personal preference but otherwise made it as written. Will make again!

I enjoyed this recipe. I was looking for something different for New Years back-eyed peas. Usually I do the Texas caviar thing. Mine didn’t turn out like soup more like a side dish (broth was so...

Added tofurky kielbasa, bay leaf, and red pepper flakes. Used frozen instead of canned black eyed peas. Used kale instead of collards since I couldn't find collards, so omitted the cider vineg...
