Also called New Year's Day Soup. We had leftover ham; so I searched through my cookbooks and found this recipe (in Southern Living book)! I made a few changes. It is absolutely wonderful and healthy! I could eat it everyday! It you would like a vegetarian version use vegetable broth and leave out the ham.

How to Make Good Luck Soup


  • 1Saute first 5 ingredients over medium heat in a large soup pan, until vegetables are tender.
  • 2Stir in black eyed peas and next 4 ingredients; bring mixture to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 1 1/2 hours. Stir in spinach, parsley and pepper. Serve.
  • 3Note: I used dried black eyed peas (soak over night), and then cook for 1 1/2 hours; drain most of the liquid and then proceed with recipe. I used frozen spinach and dried parsley and added when I added the beans to the sauteed veggies.
    If you want to cook in the slow cooker just throw everything in and cook for 5 or 6 hours.
