This sounds wonderful. I wish it were cold at night here but not right now. Maybe some of you can try this now in your area though! (source - surfing net)

  1. Heat oil in a large, heavy-duty pot over medium-high heat. Add onion, celery and garlic and sauté for 5 minutes, or until softened. Add water, carrots, sweet potato, parsnip, parsley, oregano, salt and pepper and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add rice and cook for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until rice is tender. Add black-eyed peas and cook until thoroughly heated.
  2. Remove from heat and let stand for 10 minutes. Serve in shallow bowls with bread, if desired.

Unfortunately, it was just OK. Pretty bland. I made the recipe as written, but it was very watery--more like a soup than a stew. So I added some couscous and some lentils to thicken it up. Then I used the previous reviewer's idea of adding a little butter and some Greek seasoning. Still bland. So I added some diced Anaheim pepper. I still might make this again, because I love black eyed peas, but I will plan to add a lot more seasoning next time.

A very nice meatless meal! I didn't have parsnips, so used a little more sweet potato. I did add some Greek seasoning and a little margarine at the end to spice it up just a little. I also added a little veggie "chicken" broth to the water while cooking. Some friends camem and sampled it and just loved it! Thanks!
