Ingredients
  • 3 cups dried black-eyed peas
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter or vegetable oil
  • 3 onions, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 6 to 8 cups chicken stock or water
  • 2 tomatoes, peeled, seeded and diced
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 bunch oregano leaves, roughly chopped
  • Plain yoghurt, for garnish
Directions

Place beans in a saucepan and cover with a generous quantity of water. Bring to a boil and cook, uncovered, until beans are tender, about 1 hour. Meanwhile, melt butter in a heavy bottomed stockpot, add onions and cook until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook 2 more minutes. Add dry spices and fry gently until aromas are released.

Drain excess water off beans and add to stockpot, along with salt and stock or water. Cook gently over low heat until flavors are combined, about 20 minutes. Add tomatoes, brown sugar, and oregano, and cook an additional 10 minutes. Serve hot garnished with plain yogurt.

    Very easy to make and tastes fabulous!
    This soup is good. It's not as savory as I was thinking I wanted when I was looking for a black eyed pea recipe. It's got mexican and italian spices which make it a bit eclectic and the brown sugar and cinnamon give it a sweeter flavor. It's different and hearty.
