|Black Eyed Pea Soup with Fresh Dill|
Step # 2: Boil and mash a potato then set aside - you can use an extra potato if you prefer a thicker soup.
Step # 3: Rinse your black-eyed peas, then bring to a boil and let simmer in 1 1/2 cups of fresh water. While the peas are simmering, you will chop and saute 1 red bell pepper, 1 onion, 2 cloves of garlic, 1/2 cup of a deep green leafy vegetable and a 1/4 cup of fresh dill.
Step # 4: Combine the sauteed vegetables, the mashed potatoes, 1 diced tomato, 1 teaspoon of salt and the black-eyed peas together. Simmer for a 1/2-hour.
Step # 5: Taste the soup to make sure the flavor and consistency is where you would like it to be. If everything is perfect, you are ready to serve.
Step #6: Finish by garnishing with grated Parmesan cheese and a sprig of dill.
