Here’s a really delicious vegan recipe for blackeye peas. They would be excellent served over a bed of rice, or also with any grain you enjoy. The video demonstration is below with the written recipe following that.
Easy Blackeye Peas (Vegan)
Makes 4 Servings
1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil*
1/3 cup chopped yellow onion
1/3 cup chopped green bell pepper
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 tsp dried parsley flakes
1 tsp dried thyme leaves
Pinch red pepper flakes
¼ tsp salt, or to taste
1/8 tsp pepper, or to taste
1-1/2 cups vegetable broth
1 (12 oz) bag of frozen Blackeye peas
Place the oil in a skillet or saucepan with a lid and allow it to heat up briefly. Add the onion and bell pepper and allow them to sauté for about 2 minutes, until they start to soften up. Add the garlic and sauté for 1 minute more. Add the remaining ingredients, stir, and cover the pan. Bring everything to a boil, then reduce the heat to simmer. Allow everything to cook until the peas are tender, about 30 to 35 minutes. Remove from heat and serve.
Suggestion: This is excellent served over a bed of rice.
*If you prefer not to use oil, simply sauté in a couple tablespoons of the vegetable broth.
