Vegan Black Eyed Peas-Savoury and Delicious
Monsieur Doughboy's Black Eyed Peas
Black eyed peas are very nutritious and filling. They are part of the bean family, a legume. The black eyed pea is thought to have been originally grown in Africa and brought to America and other areas of the world in the 17th century.
Black eyed peas are soul food, used in rich, meat and fat laden recipes. But they are very nutritious when cooked without added fats. They are rich in calcium, potassium, zinc, folate, and vitamin A.
Black eyed peas are delicious as well as nutritious. They can be made into a paste and fried or eaten in a soup base like any other bean. Any way they are cooked, black eyed peas add a wonderful flavor to the menu.
