Creole Blackeyed Pea Stew

Well, this stew full of blackeyed peas will hopefully bring me good luck in the New Year. This was the tastiest way I have ever enjoyed blackeyed peas. I love anything with creole flavoring and okra, so I decided to make something kind of like a gumbo, kind of like a stew. Whatever you want to call it, it sure was delicious. I used a new seasoning I found at Whole Foods. It is an organic blackened creole seasoning made by Frontier. I think that next time I make this, I will serve it over polenta or a big piece of cornbread.

Creole Blackeyed Pea Stew

1 1/2 cups cooked blackeyed peas
1 (14.5 oz) can fire roasted tomatoes
1 cup chicken broth or vegetable broth
2 cups frozen gumbo vegetable mix (okra, corn, celery, onions, peppers)
1-2 tsp blackened creole seasoning

Directions:
Combine all ingredients in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, and then simmer for 30-40 minutes to let flavors combine.

It sure looks good, but me and okra don't get along. It's all "Hey Bob" and I'm all "uhm, no."

Where I am going with this? Who knows. But I know a couple people who love okra and blackeyed peas who I will send this recipe to. :)
