Very versatile. Made for the simanim for Rosh hashana.
Got home from work tonight and wanted to watch the Red Sox in the ALCS, so I needed something simple that didn't require a lot of attention. This definitely fit the bill. Like another reviwer, I used canned black-eyed peas, and per that review used a bit less water. I also used chicken boullion and served over Rice Verde as the aforementioned reviewer suggested. Brilliant! I'm definitely making this again. Thanks for posting.
This was very good! I appreciated the instructions on how to quickly cook the dried beans when you don't have a night to soak them. And it really did work well! I halved the recipe since bean recipes tend to yield a lot but 4-6 servings, halved, ended up being just enough for me and my girlfriend with no leftovers. Next time I'll make the whole batch so we have food for lunch the next day.
Easy and delicious! We ate this with rice; it was a good and filling meal. Thanks for sharing this economical and tasty recipe.
This was absolutely wonderful! I used this recipe as one of my two New Year's black eyed peas recipes for good luck (this was definitely my favorite). The herbs paired wonderfully with the beans. I decided to add half a chicken bouillon to the pot with the herbs and seasonings. Like other reviewers, I too missed ham hock with black eyed peas, so I used some crumbled bacon to serve on the side, since I was also cooking for a vegetarian. I am not even a black eyed pea fan; however, I would consider making this recipe again. Thanks!
I used canned beans to shorten the cooking time, but I always dump the cooking water twice to avoid them causing gas. I just dumped the water from the can and rinsed the beans, refilled some water and cooked for about 10 mins, dumped again and refilled slightly, then added chicken broth to make up the rest of the liquid. Didn't have a chili pepper, so I used red pepper flakes. This even got a thumbs-up from my finacee' who usually does not like beans.
I've always enjoyed traditional black-eyed peas or black-eyed peas made as hoppin' john, but this is really good. I will definitely do this again. A nice change for dried peas/beans. Thanks so much for posting this. Made for Zaar Stars Tag.
This was our new years day meal-its good luck to eat black eyed peas for the new year! This was delicious and we will definatly eat it again soon! Thanks for the recipe!
This was a nice change for us from the typical spicy black-eyed peas (or bean) recipes I often use. I did add in extra herbs and we served this with brown rice. Thank you!
