Black Eyed Peas with Cornbread Dumplings

(image credit) My family loved this. They love most recipes that include sausage, to be fair, but they loved this extra on top. I followed the recipe closely, other than I was heavy handed with chicken bouillon. The result was almost too salty (I also added salt) so will fix that next time. I boiledContinue reading “Black Eyed Peas with Cornbread Dumplings”

Pasta With Blackeye Salsa

(image credit) This one was different and very good — light and fresh. Basically just elbow pasta or shells with a light fresh sauce made of tomatoes. I used the pasta in a mac and cheese container, lemon juice because I didn’t have lime juice, and regular tomatoes because I didn’t have cherry tomatoes. WasContinue reading “Pasta With Blackeye Salsa”

No Rules Black-eye Peas Cookies

(image credit the author, CC0) I love cookies. It is a cookie kind of week. I made black-eyed pea cookies, lightly inspired by this recipe. I was feeling lazy and rebellious so I took a bunch of shortcuts. I think they are fantastic. Not too sweet, crunchy on the bottom, buttery, delicious. YMMV: I haveContinue reading “No Rules Black-eye Peas Cookies”

Black-Eyed Peas with Coconut Milk and Ethiopian Spices

(image credit) Our previous recipe took a well-trod path to my family’s heart: tomatoes and sausage. This recipe, however, took more risks. My husband John had to track down Ethiopian berbere seasoning at the local specialty food store. Totally worth it though, it was amazing. I used a full can of coconut milk and cutContinue reading “Black-Eyed Peas with Coconut Milk and Ethiopian Spices”

Black-Eyed Pea Soup

(image credit) Pretty boring recipe title, but yum so tasty. This has been one of our favourites thus far. I used two big cans of diced tomatoes, undrained, and a small can of green chilis, undrained. I rounded up on all the dry seasonings and the Worcestershire sauce. Otherwise made it just as is. EasyContinue reading “Black-Eyed Pea Soup”

Black Eyed Peas with Fresh Dill, Olive Oil and Orange Slices

(image credit) I read about this traditional recipe from Crete. Very different flavour profile than I normally cook, so I thought would be a fun experiment. The recipe author published a slightly modified version for the Instant Pot, so I followed that recipe (I have a multi-cooker electric pressure cooker. It came out before InstantContinue reading “Black Eyed Peas with Fresh Dill, Olive Oil and Orange Slices”

Black Eyed Peas and Greens Stuffed Buns

(image credit) Ok this recipe is fantastic. The buns looked just like the gorgeous picture, and were super tasty. I served them with the chili honey sauce linked to in the recipe and the combo was one of the best things I’ve eaten in a long time. Ok, at least since the black-eyed pea frittersContinue reading “Black Eyed Peas and Greens Stuffed Buns”

Lucky Black-Eyed Peas Chocolate Chip Blondies

(image credit) We had this black-eyed pea dessert for dinner one night, because it was that kind of week. My daughter made them, she said they were really easy to pull together. The batter tastes a lot like beans, but the final product doesn’t! They are good. I’m not the biggest fan of the almondContinue reading “Lucky Black-Eyed Peas Chocolate Chip Blondies”

Chicken Chili With Black Eyed Peas

(image credit) Well 2021 has gotten off to a bit of a rocky start — paused posting about beans to focus on the attempted coup of the USA. That seems to have calmed down for the moment, so back to beans. Made a chicken chili with black eyed peas a few days ago. My 14Continue reading “Chicken Chili With Black Eyed Peas”
