Turkey and Black-Eyed Peas Soup #SundaySupper

Turkey and Black-Eyed Peas Soup Bowl

Turkey and Black-Eyed Peas Soup with chunks of potatoes and kale. A hearty, delicious heart-healthy soup! One bowl is not enough!
I have a secret that makes this heart-healthy soup, souper special.
I didn’t use turkey breast or thighs. I said beat it to turkey drums,too.
You guessed it. I made this soup with turkey wings.
Wing meat has the taste of white meat and the moist, tender texture of dark meat. Turkey wings also make full-bodied stock and can be quite economical too.
Black-Eyed Peas, also known as cowpeas, are actually beans. Like all beans, dried cowpeas swell when cooked. In some cultures, people eat these beans on New Year’s Day hoping to bring wealth and prosperity to the household.
I eat them because they’re delicious and good for you.
Black Eyed-peas are loaded with vitamins and nutrients.
These beans are a great source of Potassium, Dietary fiber, Vitamin A, Vitamin K, Calcium, and Magnesium.
Kale is no slouch either. 😉
This leafy green is high in Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Calcium and Iron.
