A quick and simple meal when the fridge is empty and all you have is your pantry and freezer! This is a simple one-pot dish, inspired by Hoppin’ John.

(This is the pantry-freezer version. If you happen to have fresh tomatoes, okra, sausage or black-eyed peas, go ahead and use those instead!)


  1. 1Pre-heat oil in a deep-sided pan.
    Saute onion and sausage together in pan until just browned.
  2. 2Add okra to pan.
  3. 3Once okra is mostly thawed, add tomatoes and black-eyed peas to pan.
  4. 4Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally until warm.
  5. 5Season to taste with salt/pepper or garlic salt/chili powder
