Field peas, such as pink-eyed peas, are often cooked with bacon or ham. In this easy vegetarian version, sautéing the onions and garlic in butter adds a touch of richness, while Spanish smoked paprika mimics the taste of bacon.

How to Make It

Step 1

Sort and wash peas.

Step 2

Heat butter in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onion, garlic, and jalapeño to pan; sauté 3 minutes or until onion is tender. Add peas, broth, pepper, and paprika; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 50 minutes or until peas are tender, stirring occasionally.
