Black Eyed Pea Stew



Come Hungry! This is quite the hearty “stew”, with marvelous flavor and texture. As you see it calls for dried peas, vegan sausage, and the use of a crock pot. I’ve done it in that manner, yum…however, you may choose to use canned peas (drained), real sausage, and prepare stove top in a fraction of the time, with the same delightful flavor and results! Come on Home, Game Over, Red Rover!


1 lb dried black eyed peas
1 lb ground Vegan sausage
2 cans Rotel
1 medium sweet onion, chopped
2 Tbs hot pepper sauce
5 garlic cloves, pressed
4 bay leaves
1 t dried thyme
1 t dried parsley
1/2 t salt
8 cups chicken broth
3 cups hot cooked white rice, optional

Combine all except sausage and rice in slow cooker.
Cover and cook on low for 7 hours.
Separately brown the Vegan sausage and set aside.
You may need to chop it to get fine crumbles.
Add this in to slow cooker for the last hour.
Serve over 1/2 cup rice, if desired.
Serves 6 to 8.
