This is soooo good. It's my modification of a recipe I found online somewhere. I just got my first pressure cooker and this was the recipe I used to break it in. This soup is so easy and quick in the pressure cooker...cooked in 25 min. and tasted like it had been slow cooking all day! Of course, it can also be cooked stovetop or in the slow cooker! Filling, satisfying comfort food with just a bit of spice!
**Pressure cooker directions: Heat oil and saute onions 2-3 minutes. Add garlic, chili powder and black pepper. Cook and stir one minute more. Stir in rice to coat;cook and stir 2 minutes. Pour in stock and add carrots, celery, bell pepper and black eyed peas. Put lid on pressure cooker and bring to high pressure. Cook 15 minutes. Release pressure, remove lid and stir in kale and salt. Replace lid, bring back to high pressure and cook 10 minutes more.
**stove top directions: Saute onion in oil. Add garlic, chili powder and black pepper; cook and stir one minute more. Add stock, carrots, celery, pepper and black eyed peas. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer 1 hour. Add brown rice, return to boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer another hour. During last 10 minutes, stir in kale and salt.
