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)

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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  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.
