Use this simple cooked field peas recipe as a template, varying the fresh herbs used here or by adding a pinch of ground red pepper, if desired. This dish makes a grand side to corn bread and grilled pork.

How to Make It

Sort and wash peas; place in a medium saucepan. Add 4 cups cold water and remaining ingredients to pan; bring to a boil. Partially cover, reduce heat, and simmer 30 minutes or until tender; skim surface occasionally, discarding solids. Drain; discard thyme and garlic.
