Cajun Black-Eyed Pea Soup


Today I thought I’d share a recipe with y’all because the rainy, cooler weather inspired me to make soup this week. I love this recipe because it is ridiculously EASY. I also have an unnatural love for black-eyed peas. In fact, this recipe might not excite others, but I personally, LOVE IT. It’s adapted from a recipe found in “Joy of Cooking: All About Vegetarian Cooking“.

You’ll need:

  • About 2 1/2 cups dried black eyed peas, rinsed, sorted, and soaked
  • 3 medium stalks of celery, diced
  • 2 medium onions, diced
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 10 cups cold water
  • 2 tbls Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbls louisiana hot sauce
  • 1 tbls salt
  1. In a soup pot, gently cook, covered, but stirring occasionally until tender all of the vegetables.
  2. Add the black eyed peas and the water.
  3. Simmer, partially covered for an hour or until soft.
  4. Slightly mash the peas to thicken the soup.
  5. Add the rest of the ingredients and enjoy! (I served mine with gluten free cornbread)
