Black Eyed Pea and Lentil Soup

Black Eyed Pea and Lentil Soup
We love Black Eyed Peas, but other than as I side dish, I have no idea what to do with them!  I made these tasty Black Eyed Pea and Quinoa Patties, but this time I wanted a warm soup for lunch.  While not the mostly well balanced soup, the resulting recipe was pretty tasty for such a simple lunch.
