Black-Eyed Pea Gumbo

Black-Eyed Pea Gumbo created by kelli703

This is SO simple, either crock pot or stovetop! A friend of mine served this a few weeks ago on a very cold Sunday and I've made it three times since! Spice it up or tone it down as you like. I like spicy foods so I add a lot of Tabasco? to my bowl! Some people like to add okra as well for the real gumbo look...I hope you enjoy this!

ingredients

directions

  • Slice bell pepper, celery (dice if you prefer) and uncooked sausage.
  • Put all ingredients EXCEPT RICE in a crock pot (this will fill a 3 quart crock pot).
  • Cook on high for at least 3 hours then add cooked rice* and cook for an additional 30 minutes.
  • If you make this on the stove top the cooking time will be approximately 45 to 60 minutes.
  • *I leave the rice out and allow each person to put in as much as they like in their bowl and pour the gumbo over it.
  • IF there is any left over, I add the remaining rice.
  • If it is needing additional broth the next day, I add tomato juice or tomato sauce (juice works the best).

    Made this as a Kwanzaa side dish at our Boxing Day celebration. I "veganized" this recipe so that my son and his girlfriend could eat it too. I use a vegan sausage, and I substituted vegetable broth for for the beef broth. One of my biggest substitutions was to use a pound of dry black-eyed peas in place of the canned. I prepared the peas per the package directions. I also added 4 diced jalapeno peppers. I, too, served the rice separately. crowd at our party really liked the dish.

    This was amazingly easy and delicious. I used the same ingredients as listed including Hot Rotel and Kiolbassa Beef with Jalapenos Sausage, Better than Boullion for Beef Broth . Cooked in the crockpot for 2 hours. Such simple and few ingredients and such rich flavor. Tasted like restaurant and without a roux! Thank you so much for the recipe. I will be making this again.

    Did not use any of the spicy things as we're not big fans of heat, and we enjoyed it without.

    Nice and quick gumbo recipe to satisfy any hankerin' for some. I've made it twice -- once it was excellent; the other time it was a disaster. Recommendation to avoid the disaster -- check the labels on the canned items. I unwittingly picked up excessively salty versions, which ruined the taste of the overall recipe and made me parched for a few hours. I will definitely make this recipe again (it is good), but I will check the labels much more carefully next time.
