This flavorful ground beef soup is an excellent choice for an everyday fall or winter meal, and it is packed with nutrients. Canned black-eyed peas add protein and make for an easy preparation. And it's a hearty, satisfying soup.

We enjoy this soup with freshly baked cornbread. Biscuits would be good with the soup as well. Add a tossed salad for a fabulous family lunch or dinner.

What You'll Need

  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 small cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 medium carrots, diced
  • 2 cups chopped kale
  • 2 cups beef stock or broth, low sodium or unsalted
  • 1 can (14.5 ounces) diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 can (15 ounces) black-eyed peas, drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup corn kernels
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, or to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

How to Make It

  1. Heat oil in a large saucepan or Dutch oven over medium-low heat.
  2. Add the ground beef and onion; saute, stirring, until the ground beef is  no longer pink and onions are lightly browned.
  3. Add the minced garlic and carrots and cook for 1 minute longer.
  4. Add the beef stock or broth and bring to a boil. Simmer for 10 minutes.
  5. Add the kale, tomatoes, black-eyed peas, corn, and seasonings. Cover and simmer for 20 to 25 minutes.
  2. Serve with hot baked cornbread or corn muffins.

Tips and Variations

  • Replace the kale with chard, spinach, or escarole. Or use a mixture of greens. 
  • Replace the black-eyed peas with black beans or small red beans.
