All the foods you're suppose to eat on New Years for good luck and fortune in one pot! I got the inspiration for this soup from a delicious recipe I tried years ago but it took hours and several steps to make. This version is quick and can be varied to your likes and dislikes. It would be great with some Louisana Hot Sauce or served over rice.
Cut sausage into pieces and saute until lightly browned. I used turkey sausage but any beef, pork, or chicken would be great as well.
In a crockpot, mix together tomato puree, tomatoes, garlic, tumeric, paprika, and oregano. Add more spices as needed. Add sauerkraut, black eyed peas, collard greens, and smoked sausage. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Simmer for approximately an hour until hot throught and the flavors have combined.
