 Ingredients List

  • 4 c Black-eyed peas (about 2
  • -cans)
  • 3/4 ts Salt
  • 1 c Onions; chopped fine
  • 2 Cloves garlic; minced
  • 2 tb Butter or vegetable oil
  • 1 pn Ground allspice
  • 1 pn (or more) cayenne
  • 1 1/2 tb Soy sauce (optional)
  • Plenty of freshly ground
  • -black pepper to taste
  • 3 c Cooked brown rice
  • 1 lg Ripe tomato; chopped
  • 1/2 c Chopped scallions
  • Chopped fresh parsley
  • Sour cream or nonfat plain
  • -yogurt
  • Smoked cheddar cheese;
  • -grated (see note)


Warm the black-eyed peas with their liquid in a saucepan. Saute the
onions and garlic in the butter or oil until golden, about 10 minutes. Add
the allspice, cayenne, and soy sauce. Stir this mixture into the warm peas.
If necessary, add a little water or vegetable broth to make it juicy.
Simmer gently for about 20 minutes to allow the flavors to marry. Stir

To serve, top the warm rice with the black-eyed peas and then the chopped
fresh tomato, scallions, and parsley. Add sour cream or grated smoked
cheddar cheese as well, however you like. (I have hot pepper sauce
available at the table, since we like things spicy. You can play with this
recipe a bit.)

NOTE: Regular sharp cheddar works too, but it doesn't have that smoky
flavor (reminiscent of bacon).
