Great starter recipe. I omitted the celery. Used 1 cup low sodium chicken broth and four links of fresh andouille sausage browned. Didn't use canned tomatoes, instead used fresh tomatoes (skin removed), and fresh chile peppers. Added spices - tsp. cayenne pepper, a dash of habanero Tabasco sauce, tsp. Old Bay, two bay leaves and tsp. hot chile powder - to an onion, bell pepper and garlic (4 cloves) saute, then added all to the pot of peas...it would have been too bland otherwise. As it was, the chileheads in my house still added extra habanero hot sauce to their individual servings. Initially didn't add the rice...we started out serving this over white rice made separately...but after the first meal, I stirred the leftover rice into the black eyed pea mixture and the result was even better than the original. Will definitely make this again. Even my mother, who does not like black eyed peas, liked this.
