Black Eyed Peas

Black Eyed Peas as the main event……one of the best, simple, southern dishes from my childhood. (you can add more spices, but honestly, the simpler the better is what makes it good)


one bag of black eyed peas

vegetable broth

one yellow onion

garlic salt

Soak a bag of BEP anywhere from one hour to overnight in cold water.

Drain peas and add broth to cover peas about 3 inches

Bring peas to a boil, then reduce heat to low.

In the meantime, dice an onion and add to peas

Cover and cook for at least two hours, maybe longer. You may need to keep adding water or broth to the pot as you go. Sometimes I let mine simmer most of the day on low.

**Serve with cornbread and sautéed greens of some kind.

Simple. Southern. Goodness.
