Smoked Sausage & Black Eyed Pea Soup


I love soup.  I.  LOVE.  SOUP!

Once the weather turns bitter cold, out comes my soup recipes.  I love to collect soup recipes and I don’t believe you can every have enough of them.  This recipe has been on hand for years and I still love it today as I did then.



  • 1 pound smoked sausage
  • 2 cans black-eyed peas
  • 1 onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon Tony’s seasoning
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 3 teaspoons dried parsley (I had fresh on hand.)
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 3 small potatoes (left those out of picture.)
  • 1 cup frozen spinach (I had fresh on hand.)
  • 6 cups chicken broth


Dice up the onion and sausage.


In a large stock pot, brown the sausage with the onion.


Dice up your garlic and add this to the sausage and onion that are cooking.


Open up your black eyed peas and dump them in, juice and all.


Add chicken broth and stir.  Bring this to a boil.


Dice up your potatoes and chop up your parsley.


Roughly chop your spinach (well.. unless you are using frozen and then just pull it out.)


Once your soup is boiling, add your potatoes, parsley, thyme, Tony’s seasoning, and spinach.  Stir.  Let this simmer for about 30 minutes.


Make a batch of southern cornbread and enjoy!    <—-  click for cornbread recipe
