I love black eyed peas, they are so good for a low cholesterol diet. Posted for ZWT III, North Africa, Egyptian.


  1. Wash the peas and boil them in a pot with water and salt for 45 minutes. Drain them.
  2. In another pot put the olive oil and the onion. Stir and cook for 2-3 minutes. Then add the garlic, the tomatoes, the tomato paste, the parsley and the dill. Let them cook in medium hear for 30 minutes. Add some salt.
  3. Add the peas to the sauce, mix and cook in low heat for 15 minutes.

This is great! It makes a large amount and is tasty enough to bring to a pot luck! Excellent with any Middle Eastern/Mediterranean meal.

Perfect healthy recipe , but I didn't add parsley or dill as I felt it will be too many flavors , also I ignored the tomato paste , I only used fresh tomato .It turned yummy with white rice and steak .

I made this dish for my daughters book club group and my only change that I would make to this recipe is I would not add as much dill to it. Other than that this dish is GREAT
