1 t. salt

1 t. paprika

1 c. fresh brewed coffee

2 c. canned pumpkin

2, 15.8 oz. cans blackeye peas, including liquid

28 oz. can petite diced tomatoes

12 oz. can tomato paste plus 2 cans water

15 oz. can whole kernel corn, including liquid

2 T. sugar

1 T. ground coriander

2 t. dried tarragon

2 t. ground fennel seed

1/4 t. ground allspice

1 T. liquid smoke

1 T. salt plus to taste

freshly ground black pepper to taste

2 c. froz. cut green beans

2 c. froz. cut okra

orange zest garnish (optional)

In extra-large soup pot over medium heat, melt oil. Add green peppers, onion and salt. Saute till partially wilted.

Add paprika, garlic powder, onion powder and poultry seasoning followed by Yves Veggie Ground. Stir well to break apart and distribute evenly. Saute about 5 minutes.

Add remaining ingredients, except green beans, okra and orange zest, stirring well after each addition. Bring to soft boil, then reduce heat to medium-low and cook about 45 minutes.

Add green beans and okra, and cook 15 minutes longer. Adjust for seasoning and serve.

If desired, top each bowl with a little orange zest.

Use a coffee that tastes like coffee for best results.

Notes: Blackeye peas add a meaty texture and flavor to anything you put them in. In that way, they’re different from a pea or a bean.

This hearty soup has multi-dimensional textures and flavors.
