Slow Cooker Sausage and Black-Eyed Pea Stew with Beet Greens from On Top of Spaghetti

Slow Cooker Sausage and Black-Eyed Pea Stew with Beet Greens
Sausage, black-eyed peas, and greens; I love this combination!  (Photo from On Top of Spaghetti.)

I love sausage, beans, and greens, so it's not surprising this recipe for Slow Cooker Sausage and Black-Eyed Pea Stew with Beet Greens from On Top of Spaghetti would catch my eye.  But I was especially intrigued because this recipe includes two ingredients I haven't ever used in the slow cooker!  Black-eyed peas (called black-eyed beans in Greece where this blogger is located) are one of my favorites, and I love how they're combined with beet greens, (although you can probably use another type of greens as well.)  This looks like a perfect dish to eat some and freeze some; hope you give it a try!

Ingredients for this recipe:
Dried black-eyed peas (also called black-eyed beans), water or vegetable stock, beef sausage, beet greens, celery, yellow pepper, carrot, tomato paste, dried herbs, black pepper, sweet paprika, Parmesan rind, salt, optional grated Parmesan for serving.

  1. I've never done black-eyed peas in the slow cooker, either, so that's going on my to-do list. Thanks for linking to one of my recipes.

  2. Lydia, I'm intrigued, especially as she started with dry, unsoaked black-eyed peas and cooked them all day.

  3. Thank you Kalyn for sharing my recipe! Here in Greece people don't soak black-eyed beans/peas, as they wouldn't lentils. They need a much shorter cooking time than other beans so I though why not just throw them in there?! Hope you like it!

  4. I can't wait to try something with dry unsoaked black-eyed peas. In the U.S. they are sold frozen, partly cooked, canned, and dried. But of course the dried ones are most economical!
