Black-Eyed Pea Soup (No Added Fat)

We are having some really cold weather even below freezing. Yesterday, we had stopped at a favorite restaurant, Vimala's Curryblossom Cafe, for a snack, and enjoyed a black-eyed pea soup. I thought that I would put together a version of such a soup for tonight.

  • 2c black-eyed peas
  • 3/4 cup fennel stalk chopped into 3/8" cubes
  • 3/4 cup leek cut into 1/2" cubes
  • 1 packed cup kale leaves, stems excepted, roughly hand torn into approximately 3/4" squares
  • Vegan bouillon cube
  • 1/2 t turmeric
  • (optional) 1/4 t amchoor (mango) powder
  • 6c water
  • 1/2 t (or to taste) salt
  • 1 cup onion cut into half moon slices approx. 1/4" x 1 1/4"
  1. I put all of the ingredients except the salt and onion into my Instant Pot pressure cooker and pressed the "Soup" button for half hour of pressure cooking.
  2. After the cooking was done, I waited a few minutes and gently released pressure, then added the salt and onion and served.


Ideas for the future
