In a large pot, sauté the diced onions with neutral oil or water (if oil-free) until semi-translucent.
Once the onions have been cooked, add in the diced celery and diced red bell pepper. Sauté for about 1-2 minutes along with the onion.
Add in the canned black eyed peas, vegetable broth, and all other remaining ingredients.
Cover with a lid and let simmer for at least 30 minutes on low medium heat. Stir frequently.
Serve with rice or meal of your choice. Enjoy!
