Black Eyed Peas and Greens

My romance with Black Eyed Peas continues. I had some very poor dishes made with very old peas in the past. Aside from bringing luck on New Years Day, new crop, home-made Black Eyed Peas are just plain delicious. Like Lima Beans and Teparies, they aren’t as versatile as regular bean. They have a more vegetable flavor that is easy to like but not as easy to add to everything.

I had leftover plain Black Eyed Peas and added them to sauteed greens, in this case they were Stinging Nettles from the farmers market, but chard, broccoli rabe or even mustard greens would have been good.

You can still order our Super Lucky 2017 Black Eyed Peas in time for New Years Day if you do it soon. We’re coming to the end of our crop this year but we’ll have them again this fall.

    Oh my, so simple and so delicious. Thank you for sharing and always giving us new ideas on how to use beans diferently.
