To make things easier, get your potatoes, carrots, onion, and celery cut up ahead of time. I cut them all into bite size pieces.
Grab a saucepan and add the olive oil. Turn the heat on medium.
Add the diced onions and cook them until they are brown and starting to become translucent. At this point, things are already starting to smell wonderful in this homemade soup.
Next, add the celery and cook it until it starts to become soft.
Pour the salt into the saucepan.
Add the pepper. The hearty soup recipe is already a little bit spicy with the addition of the smoked sausage, so the pepper will add a touch more spiciness.
The black-eyed peas go in next.
Pour the chicken broth into the saucepan. This will add even more delicious flavor to the pot.
It’s time to add the potatoes, carrots. Stir everything together.
Bring the sausage and vegetable soup to a boil.
Place the lid on the saucepan and bring the soup down to a simmer. Simmer for about 25 minutes, or until the potatoes are soft.
Finally, once the soup is done cooking, add the sauerkraut. My dad is not a big fan of sauerkraut, so you can leave it out. But, it does add a good flavor to the soup, and it’s great for bringing in the New Year.
Mix the sauerkraut in and serve the soup. It’s great with a side of homemade cornbread.
