Thaw frozen greens in the microwave or a bowl of boiling water. If preferred, chard or collards can be substituted for kale. Chop and combine with broth, thawed from frozen black-eyed peas, minced garlic, chopped sweet potatoes (can use an 18-ounce (510 gram) can vacuum-packed unsweetened sweet potatoes, drained, rinsed, and chopped), and liquid smoke in a large saucepan.
Bring to a boil, stirring often, then reduce heat and simmer for 20 to 30 minutes.
