4 to 6 ounces diced ham
4 cloves garlic, minced
4 cups chicken broth

In a large Dutch oven or large saucepan over medium heat, saute the onion and celery in vegetable oil until tender. Add the ham, bell pepper, and garlic and saute, stirring, for 2 to 3 minutes longer.

To the ham and vegetable mixture add chicken broth, black-eyed peas, greens, tomatoes, Creole seasoning, pepper, and oregano. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 45 minutes to 1 hour. Taste and add salt, as needed.
