I’ve never tried Black Eyed Peas until today and I have to say that they cook up pretty well…………

I knew that, like most legumes, they would be a good addition to my diet, but if the taste ain’t there………it’s really hard to dig in and feed your soul with something that your tongue is trying to avoid.

If you make them from dried beans…just be certain that you’ve picked out any tiny rocks from the beans before you get to cooking….that’s a little too much fiber.  Rinse well!

The flatbread I paired up with the Black Eyed Peas fried up quickly and gave a flavorful, crispy addition to the meal.  I made the dough up in advance and then just formed up little pieces.  Each one took just minutes to fry.  (A seconds to eat)  Made a great dipper too for my stew.  But then, anything with Cholula on it is usually pretty delicious so my it’s just the sauce?

    These look wonderful and with winter (well they tell us that we WILL have winter this year… I don’t see any signs of it 😉 ) knocking on the door I need all of the hearty winter recipes that I can get…no doubt when I am up to my knees in mud (and leeches) and am wearing a suitable woolly bobble hat with a red nose and the sniffles you lot will be luxuriating in salads and icecream! 😉

      Must send pics of the hat when you get those winter winds. I’m trying to sprout a huge batch of Black Eye’d now. Hoping they’ll sprout with the house in the 60’s…love your “Inspiration” post too 🙂

        Gotta say that if I knit/crochet the bobble hat it will be a sight indeed! It might or might not fit my head (depending on how lucky I am with getting the tension right and whether Earl finds the end of the wool and manages to run off with my wool thus ajusting the tension somewhat more than it probably needs 😉 ). Kudos on the sprouts. We have an automatic sprouter that does all sorts of newfangled things like water the sprouts whenever the humidity gets low or some bollocks like that and I have used it twice to sprout “food” sprouts and now I use it to sprout seed that I want to plant. It grows really well, especially beans and took ages off their germination period. Your house is sprouting?!!! Might be time to clean out those gutters girl! 😉

            When I finish the hat and realise that it is actually big enough to FIT your 2 cats and sigh with shame at my total and utter lack of skill in either of the wooly dark arts, I will send said hat over to your cats to sleep in (and there WILL be room for them to invite a friend to sleep over 🙁 … 😉 )

              Sounds wonderful except that they each stay on their own floor of the house when not eating (both males who must “own” whatever they can conquer….my husband bought them each a heated round bed for Christmas and now they are beyond spoiled. A hand knit hat would be much too ‘common’ for them now I’m afraid. They are both useless and entertaining for us and have never earned a dime to pay you for such a wonderful gift as that hat….so save your yarn for better uses than them 🙂

                I fear my hat would most probably stretch between rooms :(… past knitting experiences have yielded jumpers (with no collars or cuffs) that my children would have rather been flayed alive than wear out in public and that my husband hid in the back of the closet ;). Never underestimate the power of wool when it comes to cats…a loose thread here (highly likely in anything that I make)…a loop (even more likely) a knot (OH so many…) can entertain even the most spoiled cat for ages ;). Fear not the hat sender of Old Australia town, I am too lazy to batch up my creative efforts to send to anyone other than the Salvation Army…I am sure that there are 3 armed people out there who would LOVE a jumper with no cuffs that their head won’t fit through… (aren’t there? 😉 )

      The silly photos are an attempt to publish yet another soupish recipe this winter. Oh well. It was delicious 🙂 I’m trying to sprout a huge batch of black eyed peas this week. I haven’t done them before and they’re looking good so far. Sprouting takes much longer here in the winter with the house so cold but I hope they work. Love having sprouts in the fridge to have for a quick lunch salad. Simple IS best – but the hot sauce really made the flavor 😉 Thanks Annie.

    Why does it make me so happy that you’ve tried black eyed peas for the first time?!? They’ve long been one of my favorite legumes! The quinoa flat bread is super creative too!
