How to make it

  • Soup:
  • Saute ham, onion and garlic in oil over medium-high heat until onions are soft; about 5 minutes.
  • Add greens and saute until they begin to wilt. (1-2 minutes)
  • Stir in water and broth. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer gently for 10 minutes.
  • Mash half the beans and the liquid from them in a small bowl, then add this mixture along with the remaining whole beans and liquid to the soup. Simmer an additional 5 minutes.
  • Before serving, add vinegar (instead of making the soup bitter, it helps to bring out the saltiness from the ham), Tabasco and salt and pepper to taste.
  • Dumplins:
  • Combine all the dry ingredients in a large bowl.
  • Whisk together egg, milk, shortening and honey in smaller bowl.
  • Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, stir just to combine.
  • Fold in cheese and pimentos (if using).
  • Bring water and broth to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low.
  • Drop batter into liquid by large spoonfuls.
  • Cover pan and simmer dumplins until firm, about 15 minutes. Remove from liquid with a slotted spoon and serve atop soup.

    Oh, this would be all my favorite comfort foods in one bowl, dumplings, black-eyed peas and collards. How delicious.
