This black-eyed pea soup is best prepared the evening before you want to serve it.
Turn on the slow cooker (Crock-Pot) to "high."
Boil 12 cups of water and carefully pour into the cooker pot. Cover with the lid.
While the water is boiling, wash the dried black-eyed peas in a strainer and remove any extraneous matter. It is best to do this in quantities of no more than one cup at a time. Add the black-eyed peas to the pot, and cover again.
Add the bay leaves.
Before going to bed, turn the slow cooker down to "low."
In the morning, mix the black-eyed pea soup, add the tomato paste, and mix again. If the soup is too thick, boil one more cup of water, add it to the pot, and mix. Repeat as necessary.
Wash, peel, and dice the onions, and add to the the cooker pot. (We precook the onions in our microwave oven.) Add cayenne pepper or hot sauce (optional, adjust to taste). Cover the pot.
If you are planning to eat the black-eyed pea soup at noon, we suggest turning the heat back up to "high." Mix the soup every hour.
If you are going to be away during the day, and are planning to eat the black-eyed pea soup in the evening, leave the pot setting on "low."
Serve and enjoy with a large tossed salad.

The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31): 'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so. God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV) Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
