Hoppin' John Soup

A local restaurant serves this daily and I just can't get enough of it!  Seemed like a good choice for a rainy day!

1 lb browned country sausage
1 bag of black eye peas (soaked) or 4 cans if using shelf canned black eye peas
4 cups rice (prepared) white, whole grain or long grain or mix them (your choice)
1/2 medium onion chopped and sauteed(or a healthy dash of onion flakes is fine too)
1/2 cup sauteed finely chopped celery (optional)
1 teaspoon Greek Seasoning
salt and pepper to taste

Mix browned, drained sausage with white rice, sauteed veggies and seasonings, cover with water and cook on low for 4 hours (only 2 hours if using canned peas).  You will need to adjust Greek Seasoning, salt and pepper to your taste.

Fantastic with Tabasco sauce and fresh bread!!! Makes great left overs for lunches too!
