Yum! enjoyed this with some blackened tofu. Love the blackeyed peas! I made a few changes - subsitutued white rice and added more spice to jazz it up a bit. Thanks for the post!

This is very tasty. I only had to add about a quarter cup of water towards the end. I loved the combination of rice, black eyed peas, tomatoes and green peppers. Yummy veggie version of Jambalaya. It is not very spicy with the 1 t of hot pepper sauce, I ended up adding a bit more. Thanks! Made for ZWT9 by a Soup-A-Star
