Black-eyed Pea recipe round-up

Believe it or not my family didn’t get tired of eating black eyed peas. I’d found really diverse recipes, I think that helped. Also they were just plain tasty! (And my family is good sports 🙂 ) We ate black eyed-peas all January. 31 days, 35 recipes. Ok 32 days because I started on DecContinue reading “Black-eyed Pea recipe round-up”

Jamaican Black-eyed Pea Curry

(image credit) I almost forgot! This one was a surprise hit! A lot like the other curries we’d had this month, but the lime + coconut milk gave it a different thing going on, very good, and made great leftovers. I made the Jamaican curry powder from scratch using the recipe on the webpage. IContinue reading “Jamaican Black-eyed Pea Curry”

Lobia tikki

(image credit) Made some black-eyed pea fritters that were a lot like Akara, but Indian instead of West African. They are made of already-cooked chickpeas, so had a bit of a smoother, less-fresh taste. Great flavour though, especially with the chutney. I forgot to add the chickpea flour initially (I think it is mentioned inContinue reading “Lobia tikki”

(image credit) My family is a big fan of sticky rice pudding at Thai restaurants (often with coconut cream on top, and/or served beside some ripe mango), so when I saw this recipe for sticky rice with black eyed peas I knew we had to try it. My grocery store didn’t stock glutenous or stickyContinue reading “Black Eyed Peas: Vietnamese Sweet Rice & Bean Pudding – Che Dau Trang”

Southern Skillet Black-Eyed Peas with Quick Buttery Biscuits

(image credit) This stew is very sweet, so that meant that some of my eaters loved it and others didn’t. I thought it had a nice flavour but I’d start by cutting the sugar and then add it in until it is a sweetness you like. I’d never cooked with collard greens before (in factContinue reading “Southern Skillet Black-Eyed Peas with Quick Buttery Biscuits”

Marinated Black-Eyed Pea Salad

(image credit) Haven’t eaten many vinegary bean salads yet, but made this one and found it very tasty. Chopped the pepper and onion very small, and skipped the parsley because I’m not much of a fan. Delicious. Am amused how often bacon is a component of recipes including black-eyed peas, including this salad 🙂 LookingContinue reading “Marinated Black-Eyed Pea Salad”

Roasted Black-Eyed Peas

(image credit) You’ve probably heard of roasted chickpeas, but these give them a run for their money. I’ve made them twice in the last week. Made one batch with some leftover honey BBQ rub seasoning. They were great. Made another with garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Also great. Made a third with smoked paprika, salt,Continue reading “Roasted Black-Eyed Peas”
