What do I do with dried black eyed peas?

I impulsively bought a bag of dried black eyed peas because I thought they were "cute". Then, a few hours ago, I impulsively started soaking them in water to make some sort of bean soup. Then I went looking for recipes (I know, I know...) and now I'm finding conflicting reports on whether you need to soak them at all.
I've never even eaten them before, so I'm kind of at a loss. I was thinking of doing a sort of Tuscan white bean soup but with these instead. Good idea? Soak or not soak?
I've got veggie broth, carrots, onion and a decent selection of spices. No spinach or greens though, and we're in the middle of snowmageddon here, so I can't run out for anything. Internet searching is turning up a lot of stuff (not to mention pictures of Fergie) so if anyone has a personally tried-and-true recipe I'd appreciate it!
