Get Your Greens New Years Soup

If you like to eat black-eyed peas and greens on New Years, I have a recipe for you. Grab your crockpot to make this Get Your Greens New Years Soup. It is very simple, with only 10 minute of active preparation time. Start by browning the turkey sausage in a large skillet and sauté the onion, garlic and fresh thyme. Then, dump and stir right into the crockpot; close the lid and cook.

This soup is very low in calories and fat and high in protein. It is also gluten-free. I use fire-roasted diced tomatoes in recipes that call for diced tomatoes as they add great flavor. I also love kale in this soup, but feel free to substitute your favorite greens, such as spinach or collard greens. Serve with a tossed salad and crackers, bread or cornbread for a healthy and hearty meal! Happy New Year everyone!
