New Year’s Leftover Soup

Hey, friends! Welcome to 2022! I promise to add more great recipes this year, and today I am kicking it off!

I’m always looking to make something out of holiday leftovers, and I wanted soup! This is how I made it:

2 T olive oil

1/2 onion, chopped

1/4 bell pepper, chopped

4 carrots, sliced or chopped

3 stalks celery, chopped

Large head garlic, chopped

1/2 jalapeño, chopped

Sauté veggies in oil until tender

Add 1 tsp ground thyme

2 tsp black pepper

6 bay leaves

32 oz chicken or veggie stock

12 oz tomato sauce

1 can Rotel tomatoes

2-3 c leftover Blackeyed peas

2 c leftover greens (I had mixed, but cabbage would be good)

Salt to taste

Cover and simmer for 2h

Serve with cornbread, crostini, or crackers. Enjoy this warm indulgence on a cold winter night!
