Black-Eyed Pea Burritos

READY IN: 40mins
YIELD: 6 burritos




  • If you are using dried peas, they must be fully cooked before you begin. Black-eyed peas can be soaked overnight to make them more easily digestible, but this is not necessary. Drain the peas, and then add enough water to cover them by 2 inches.
  • Gently boil them for 1 hour with NO salt. You can add a bit of kombu (seaweed) to the cooking water while they boil for improved digestibility.
  • If you are using canned, look for a can that does not have any salt listed in the ingredients. Some varieties are actually cooked with kombu, which is ideal. Be sure to rinse and drain the beans before using them.
  • Heat a large pan to medium, add olive oil and saute onion until softened. Add garlic, and saute briefly. Next, add the zucchini to the pan and saute until soft. The pepper goes in next, then the tomato very briefly. As soon as the tomato is warmed, add the spices and 1 tsp of the salt. Stir the drained peas into the vegetables, and add the other tsp of salt. Stir to combine.
  • Spoon the mix into the middle of each tortilla, fold in both ends and roll. Place the rolls in a baking dish and put in the oven at 300 degrees F for 15-20 minute.
