6

Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 2 cups raw carrots, diced
  • 1/3 cup raw kale, chopped
  • ¼ cup onion, chopped
  • ¼ cup celery, chopped
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 3½ cups water
  • 2 tablespoons raw parsley
  • ¼ teaspoon whole fennel seed
  • Pinch of crushed red pepper
  • 1 pound black-eyed peas
  • ½ pound turkey ham
  • ½ teaspoon salt

Method

  1. Place a large pot over medium high heat. Add the oil, chopped onion, and chopped celery and cook until translucent (the pieces will be soft and you can sort of see through them).
  2. Add the diced carrots, salt, pepper, fennel seed, and crushed red pepper. Cook for 2-3 minutes.
  3. Add the black-eyed peas and water and cook for 25-30 minutes.
  4. When the peas are soft, add the turkey ham and kale and cook for another 10 minutes until the kale is tender.
  5. Adjust seasoning (if necessary) and serve.
