Hearty Black-Eyed Pea Soup Recipe

Alice Jarrell of Dexter, Missouri waited a long time to get this favorite recipe—but it was well worth it. "I had eaten this soup countless times at a small restaurant in our town," she tells. "When the owner finally retired, he said I deserved the secret recipe and passed it along. Now, my family enjoys it at least once a month!"—Alice Jarrell, Dexter, Missouri

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 1, 2014

This is a great soup and I will make it often during cold weather. I reduced the sausage to 1/2 lb. and used 5 cups of beef broth instead of the water and bouillon cubes.

This was our January "good luck" meal. It is definitely a keeper.

MY REVIEW

No one in my family likes black-eyed peas except for me, so it took some coaxing on my part to get them to try it. Wow! Everyone loved it and I spent the next several days emailing the recipe to all my family members. This year we made it for friends as Christmas gifts! I particularly like that it is low in calorie, tastes fabulous, and is Weight Watcher friendly! I would definitely encourage anyone to make this even if you don't like black-eyed pease!
