Steps to make Black-Eyed Peas with Greens


Boil black-eyed peas


Drain and rinse ¾ cup of dried black-eyed peas then place in a large saucepan. Cover in about 2-inches of water. Bring to a boil then remove and drain from the water.


Second boil of peas


Return drained and dried peas to the saucepan and cover with the same amount of water, about 2-inches, with 2 cloves of garlic and a bay leaf. You may also add a few slices of onion, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil then reduce the heat to a simmer, cover with a lid and cook for about 30 minutes until beans are softened. Drain beans and discard aromatics. Set aside.


Sauté onions, chives and celery


In a medium, shallow skillet, heat ¼ cup of olive oil and add 1 chopped onion, 2 stalks of chopped celery and ¼ cup of chives. Sauté for about 5 minutes until soft, golden and aromatic.


Add greens, herbs and tomatoes


Add 3 cups of kale or leafy greens, ½ cup of freshly chopped parsley, ¼ cup of chopped dill and 4 small chopped tomatoes. Cook for a few minutes until the greens begin to wilt.


Add water and seasoning


Pour in about ½ cup of water and season with some salt and pepper to taste. Simmer for about 10 minutes.


Add peas


If needed, add more water to cook the peas then add 1 can of black-eyed peas or the prepared dried peas. Cook on a simmer for about 10 minutes until everything is soft, juicy and moist.



Serve warm or cool with reserved olive oil drizzled over and a few sprinkles of lemon juice.
