When Mom’s says “Eat your beans”, you are glad she cooked your favorite. According to a study of nearly ten thousand Americans, a diet containing at least 300 micrograms of the B vitamin folate (found in beans) reduces the risk of stroke and heart disease.

- 1 lbs Cajun smoked sausage, cut bite-sized
- 4 cups water
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 1 or 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/4 tsp red pepper

Pick (remove any bad peas) and wash peas.
Combine in a sauce pan with sausage, water, seasonings, onions and pepper.
Cover and simmer over low flame for 1 to 1 1/2 hours, or until tender. Add water if needed. You want to have enough water to make thick gravy.
