"Okay you may have tried Cabbage Patch Stew in the past but in this recipe the black-eyed peas combine with the cabbage to make a hearty and delicious meal. The dish is made lighter by using lean turkey and delicious chicken stock."

  1. Delicious! I did sub bulk hot Italian sausage for the turkey & used a couple jalarenos because I didn't have Rotel but otherwise behaved myself. This is fabulous & full of veggies. Black eye peas cook up quickly, too. I used dried that I cooked myself instead of canned. Made for Aussie Swap 10/13. Thank you, Paula!


I came to this site in March of 2004. It was then called Recipezaar. This site was the first on-line site that I ever joined. I first popped in 2003 while searching for a Peach Cobbler Recipe. In March of 2004, DH was having shoulder surgery and I was looking for a Split Pea Soup. Once again I found myself on Zaar as it came to be called. Over the years I hung out and learned from some of the best home cooks in the country, I posted over 700 recipes on the site, reviewed over 3500 recipes and posted over 3000 food photos. Over the next 10 years the site made many changes and in 2010 it was sold to to Food Network and became Until last year we played games, talked and shared with one another. As a result of the community and the relationships I built I got to meet some wonderful people from all over the country. I also have a great number of friends that I have never meet face to face. Some of us still hang out at various places across the net. Zaar was more than a cooking community. It was an internet community of friendship. Life is an adventure ever changing.
