    1                    carrot
    1      package       blackeyed peas  -- frozen
    1                    onion
    3      stalks        celery
    1                    green bell pepper  -- or red
    2                    tomatoes  -- or 1 can, chopped
    1      package       frozen corn kernels
    1      package       frozen okra
                         vegetable oil
                         bay leaves
                         cayenne pepper
                         black pepper
 Make vegetable stock by boiling at least one carrot, several bay leaves, 
 and any leftover root vegetables for 45 mins in 6 cups of water.  Add the 
 black-eyed peas and simmer about 30 mins.  Chop the onion, celery, and the 
 bell pepper.  Remove all the celery leaves from the top of the bunch, 
 rinse well, and chop them too.  Saute the onion in a little oil. Add the 
 celery, with leaves, and after a few mins., the bell pepper. Sprinkle 
 generous amounts of the spices in the pan, and saute another minute.  
 Remove the carrot, vegetable pieces, and the bay leaves from the stock.  
 Add the onion mixture and chopped tomatoes to the stock, and stir well, 
 adding more water if necessary.  Let simmer about 10 mins. Chop the okra 
 and stir in with the frozen corn; simmer another 10 mins. Adjust the 
 spices to taste, and serve, ideally with cornbread.
