    the80srule's Note:

    Black-eyed peas are a veggie/bean I don't use too much in my cooking and I'd like to use them more. Most recipes I've seen using them call for baking or frying up with ham or pork. This is simple, vegan, and has lots of flavor. Make sure that you are using dry black-eyed peas-- not canned. Better yet, you don't have to pre-soak these like you normally have to with dried beans. Variation hint: if you don't care much for the cilantro lime part, just nix them, add 1 tsp lemon juice instead. I also think this recipe would do great in a slow cooker like a Crockpot.

    My Private Note


    Serves: 6-8


    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      In a small saucepan or frying pan, heat up the olive oil. Saute the onion and garlic until nice and brown.
    2. 2
      Wash the black-eyed peas and remove any stones, dirt, etc. Put them into a Dutch oven (although being ghetto, I use my hand-me-down lobster pot and it works just fine. Any large pot will do.).
    3. 3
      Add the browned onion, plus all the other ingredients listed. Mix well. Bring it to a boil.
    4. 4
      Lower the temperature to medium/medium-high. Cover the Dutch Oven or pot and let it all simmer for about 70-90 minutes or until the peas are nice and tender.
    5. 5
      Awesome side dish, or great when served over brown rice with some greens for a complete vegan meal!

      I was looking for a meat-free, cilantro-containing black-eyed pea recipe, and this one really hit the spot! The only thing I did differently was to add the salt, cilantro, and lime juice a bit later than called for, towards the end of cooking. I served the beans with a hearty homemade bread, which made for a great combination.

      Delicious!!!!! I made these exactly as directed, and they taste fabulous, DH and I loved these, and in fact I had enough (I made the whole recipe) to allow me to have them for my office lunch for a day or so, enjoying them with rice, I have to say I'm very glad to have tried this recipe, and will make them again. I would add more lime juice next time, personal taste, I love my citrus. I did have to add a bit more stock after a while, this could just be due to higher altitude/wonky stove/any number of things. What an easy dish to prepare, and so very good, thank you, 80's!! Made for veg*n swap#17
