Pink-Eyed Peas with Smoked Paprika

Pink-Eyed Peas with Smoked Paprika

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.
