Recipe for Tomato soup with wild rice and black eyed peas.
Start with 8 ounces of V-8 juice, 1 cup of prepared sauce (any variety or you can use salsa if you want it spicy.)
Add 1 cup of water and add 1 cup raw rice.(you can also cook rice first if you prefer). If you are cooking with raw rice, bring to a boil and simmer for 45 minutes as per packaging and the add 1 can black eyed peas that are drained and rinsed. You can also cook your own black eyed peas if you desire. I used canned due to convenience. I wanted to make the recipe with a minimal amount of ingredients.
After simmering and adding the peas ( which are 9 grams of protein in each 1/2 cup) And the rice also has 3 grams of protein in each 1/4 cup that you consume for a total of 12 grams total protein.
At the end, I added 1/4 cup of slivered almonds for another 6 grams of protein in your soup, and simmered for another 5 minutes for a slightly nutty taste and crunch. Total protein for your day 18 grams!
