Easy Black Eyed Pea Soup with Smoked Sausage

For a "soupier" soup, add more broth or some tomato juice. For seasoning I added a couple teaspoons of Mrs Dash, but you could use your favorites, such as Cajun or Creole or whatever you have on hand.

vegetable oil
1/2 an onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
12 oz smoked sausage, sliced
about 4 cups chicken broth
1 (15 oz) can black eyed peas, rinsed and drained
1 small (15 oz can) diced tomatoes, pureed

Heat a little oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Add onion and cook til onion softens, about 5 minutes. Stir in garlic and cook another minute or so. Stir in sausage and cook til lightly browned. Stir in seasoning. Cook for a few minutes, stirring frequently.

Increase heat to high. Stir in broth, peas and tomatoes; bring to a boil. Cover and simmer about 20 minutes, or longer if preferred.

I served the soup with homemade buttermilk cornbread.http://media-files.gather.com/images/d68/d152/d746/d224/d96/f3/full.jpg
