What makes it truly delicious is the final step, which features torn ciabatta croutons topped with a hefty portion of grated Parmesan. The result is delightfully balanced between the healthful veggies and beans in the rich broth and decadent, crispy croutons atop each bowl. Ingredients 1 5-ounce block Parmigiano-Reggiano with rind ¼ cup olive oil, divided 1 yellow onion, chopped 1 ¼ teaspoons kosher salt, divided 4 cups stemmed, chopped collard greens (from 1 bunch) 1 28-ounce can crushed tomatoes 4 cups low-sodium vegetable broth 1 15-ounce can black-eyed peas, drained and rinsed ½ loaf ciabatta, torn into 2-in. pieces, divided (about 12 ounces) 2 teaspoons red wine vinegar Directions Remove rind from cheese; reserve.

Add crushed tomatoes, broth, and rind; bring to a boil over high. Add black-eyed peas, half of bread pieces, and remaining 1 teaspoon salt. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened, about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, grate cheese using the large holes of a box grater to equal ½ cup.

Transfer to oven and broil until edges of bread start to crisp and cheese melts, 3 to 4 minutes. Drizzle with remaining 2 tablespoons oil.
