- 1/4 pound Italian sausage
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1/2 yellow onion, diced
- 1 teaspoon crushed garlic
- 1/2 red bell pepper, diced
- 2 bay leaves
- 2 teaspoons dried sage
- 2 teaspoons dried thyme
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 2 teaspoons black pepper
- 1 1/2 cups chicken broth
- 1/2 pound russet potatoes, chopped
- 2 1/2 cups cooked black-eyed peas, drained
- 1/2 cup frozen sweet corn, thawed
- 2 tablespoons arrowroot powder
- 2 cups chopped green kale
- Cooked rice, for serving
Preheat oven to 350° F.
Bake sausage for 10 to 12 minutes, until cooked through and lightly browned. Cool and chop.
In a large, heavy-bottomed pan, heat oil over medium heat. Add onions, garlic and red pepper and sauté until onions are translucent, 8 to 10 minutes.
Add herbs, salt, pepper, chicken broth and potatoes. Bring to a simmer and cook until potatoes are almost done, 10 to 15 minutes, or until just slightly firm when pierced with a fork.
Add black-eyed peas, corn and sausage and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes. Thicken with arrowroot and then add chopped kale at the end, just before serving. Serve over rice.
