The Black Eyed Peas that come from Sunny Creek have been re-hydrated so they cook in about 20 minutes. They require no soaking prior to cooking. Just rinse well in a colander. Place the beans in a pot and cover with about an inch of water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for about 20 minutes until they are tender.
Variations: Those of us who grew up in the south associate the taste of bacon with our black eyed peas. A tasty vegan option is to add miso during the simmering process. Other additions, sauteed onion, garlic or both,
This dish can be served warm or cold. Original Recipe courtesy of Paula Dean
The original recipe calls for 1( 8 oz) bottle. I used only 1/ 4 cup of Lite House Red Wine and Olive Oil dressing. Another option is to use olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
