1 hr 20 min
  • 1 pound dried black eyed peas, soaked overnight
  • 1/2 stick (2 ounces) butter or margarine
  • 1 large onion, cut into big cubes
  • 1 large shallot, quartered
  • 3 to 4 cups water
  • 1/4 green bell pepper, cored, seeded and chopped
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Drain the peas, discarding the water, and set them aside. In a large skillet over medium heat, put the butter onion and shallot. When the butter is melted, increase the heat and add the peas. Mix with a wooden spoon, cover and cook about 8 minutes. Pour the contents of the skillet into a large pot, adding enough water to cover the peas. Bring to a boil, and add green bell pepper, salt and black pepper. Lower the heat to medium, and cook 50 to 60 minutes, or until peas are tender.

Loved this recipe . A keeper item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very good. I altered this slightly - using green onion, purple onion, and red pepper. I also took an earlier poster's advice and used chicken broth rather than water. It looked festive and tasted great!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
