(230 calories | *1 WW Freestyle SmartPoint)
Hearty, healthy and deliciously satisfying, my love affair with simple soups continues to deepen.
I concocted this black eyed pea slow cooker soup with what I could pull together from the refrigerator, freezer, and pantry.
I was having a lazy day and wanted a quick and easy dinner that I could toss together in the slow cooker and would cook unattended without having to run to the supermarket for ingredients.
The Skinny on Hearty Black-Eyed Pea Slow Cooker Soup
This lusciously satisfying black eyed pea slow cooker soup with greens, butternut squash, tomatoes and smoked turkey sausage was the result. It’s brimming with good-for-you vegetables and fiber.
I used frozen cooked black-eyed peas leftover from New Year’s, to make this black eyed pea slow cooker soup but feel free to substitute drained and rinsed canned instead.
Everyone really enjoyed this simple soup served with fresh-from-the-bakery French bread and butter.
Dinner really doesn’t have to be complicated to be good 🙂
