This is a great New Year’s Day black eyed pea recipe! People traditionally enjoy black eyed peas on January 1st for a year of prosperity and good fortune. But why wait until next year?  This warm and earthy soup is ready in under an hour, and is a fantastic meal in itself. You can enjoy it with sourdough bread, garlic and herb sourdough croutons, or with a slice of rosemary focaccia bread.

A Note On Cooking Black Eyed Peas

I rarely use canned beans in my recipes, as I prefer to cook them from scratch. While canned beans are super convenient, they are often loaded with sodium.  If you buy canned black eyed peas, I’d strongly recommend using a no salt added variety.

I like to cook dried beans because they are easy to cook (especially in the Instant Pot), are incredibly cost efficient, and I can add seasoning or flavors to the beans while they cook.

What’s In This Black Eyed Pea Soup Recipe?

  • Black Eyed Peas:  which you can cook from scratch in the instant pot or stove top, or just used canned. I wrote the recipe below to call for 2 cans of beans – I always use low or no sodium beans because normal canned beans can be loaded with sodium (not a great way to start a healthy New Year!)
  • Sausage of choice: I used a veggie sausage in this soup, but you can use any kind of sausage you prefer.. whatever you normally cook with would be great in this recipe!
  • Onions: for a bit of flavor and kick
  • Carrots: for color and sweetness
  • Garlic: I use fresh when I can, but this organic jarred garlic is the next best thing!  And super conveneint to have pre-chopped garlic on hand when you don’t have a lot of time to prep.
  • Celery: celery, carrots, and onion are the holy trinity and really belong in any soup 🙂
  • Diced Tomatoes: I used these amazing diced tomatoes, also no sodium!  The sausage will have plenty of sodium, so cut back whereever possible in this recipe.  I like the boxed tomatoes (over canned) because they are BPA free and are way more envinronmentally friendly than aluminum. Plus they are fairly inexpensive, so great to stock up your pantry with!
  • Collard Greens: for color and some roughage. They give this dish some southern soul, and the greens hold up fantastic to being cooked!  If you can’t find collard greens at your market, you can use kale or spinach instead.
  • Spices: garlic salt, pepper, crushed pepper flakes for heat.
