  • stock pot


  • 8 C vegetable broth No sugar! Read the label!
  • 16 ounces collard greens This is the large bag in my grocery store
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • 28 ounces tomatoes Crushed. No sugar.
  • 2 C potatoes I used a tri-color variety, but any will do.
  • 2 C carrots sliced
  • 2 cans black eyed peas 15.5 ounce, rinsed and drained
  • 3 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 C parsley chopped, optional


  • Begin by adding the vegetable broth and two cups of water to a stockpot and bring to a boil.
  • Add oregano, garlic powder, and cumin. Stir well.
  • Chop collard greens and carrots into bite-sized pieces and add to the pot. Cover and simmer for about 15 minutes.
  • While collards are cooking, chop potatoes. Add potatoes and tomatoes to the pot and cook for about 10 minutes. Note: There is sugar in so many canned goods. Read the labels! I used the Cento brand of tomatoes.
  • Drain and rinse the black eyed peas and add to the pot. Stir until combined. Simmer until hot.
  • Add salt and pepper and top with parsley. Serve hot.
