I love making soup. It is one of my favorite things about the colder months. Nothing is more comforting than a warm bowl of soup on a cold night. I made this soup the day after New Year's, since I live in the South and it is good luck to eat greens and black-eyed peas to start off the New Year. ( We were traveling home on New Year's Day). My husband tried to tell me that it didn't really count since it was the day after New Year's, but I hope we have good luck anyway.
I was able to pick the kale for this soup out of my garden. Even now the Swiss Chard and Kale are going strong!
I was inspired by this recipe for Sausage, Kale and Black-Eyed Peas, but totally did my own thing and made meatballs instead of using sausage
