Black-Eyed Pea Vegetable “Kielbasa” Stew

How about a perfect for Fall stew….

Black-Eyed Pea Stew

There is so much tastiness along with so much goodness in this stew.  I used Organic Tofurky Kielbasa crisped and charred a bit in a skillet with Vegetable broth, along with some yellow bell peppers, onions, kale, tomatoes, whole baby button mushrooms, and of course, black-eyed peas….serve it with fresh hot corn bread, Yum!

Did you know Black-Eyed Peas are actually a bean?  And they are extremely nourishing vegetables, both to people and the soil.  They are able to fix nitrogen, meaning nitrogen from the air is taken in by the plant and converted to useable nutrients.  Because of this process, nitrogen-fixing plants improve quality of nutrient absorption.  …And here in the South, eating Black-Eyed Peas and Greens (such as collards) on New Year’s Day is considered Good Luck!

The Recipe is Here, Enjoy!
