I made this soup using black-eyed peas and homemade vegetable stock instead of water, and it was a huge hit. Even my kids loved it, and they're picky eaters! The parmesan, olive oil, and balsamic vinegar topping added great flavor and made it feel like a restaurant meal. Added 15% to time b/c we're at 5500 ft.

Although the beans turned out great, the soup lacked flavor. Perhaps chicken stock would be better than water. Some of the potatoes fell apart and so over all it was a very starchy dish. I would not make it again.

I found the beans to still be a little too hard and I also added pasta water and a little vegetable stock as it was very thick. I also added more pepper. We sprinkled some parm on top and it made a nice hardy minestrone like soup
