Black-eyed pea cabbage soup is wonderful for New Year’s day or anytime you just want a good soup. My family loves soup and I usually make a pot of soup every week. This black-eyed pea cabbage soup keeps well for several days and could be frozen. Make this soup for any gathering. It makes a lot and is delicious served with my recipe for iron skillet calico cornbread or serve it for lunch with grilled cheese. If you want to make it healthy use turkey burger instead of hamburger. You could even make this soup with chicken or turkey and it would still be good.
Black-eyed pea cabbage soup is good anytime.
1 pound hamburger
1 cup chopped onion
1 cup chopped green pepper
1 cup chopped celery
1 clove of garlic, chopped
3 to 4 cups coarsely chopped cabbage
1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes
2 (14.5 ounce) cans chicken broth
3 cups water
3/4 cup dried black-eyed peas, uncooked
2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning (see my recipe for making your own Cajun seasoning)
Few drops hot sauce or pinch cayenne, (optional)
Brown hamburger, onion, green pepper, celery and garlic clove in a skillet on top of the stove. Drain and add to large soup pot. Add cabbage, tomatoes, chicken broth, water, dried black-eyed peas, Cajun seasoning and cayenne to pot. Bring to a boil, turn down to simmer and cook for 45 to 60 minutes until dried peas are done. Makes about 10 to 12 servings. Enjoy!
Note: You could make this in the crock pot by browning the first 5 ingredients and then add to 5 quart crock pot along with other ingredients. Cook on low for 7 to 8 hours or high for 4 hours.
