Easy Black-Eyed Peas
Black eyed peas are easily considered a Southern staple. These beans are cream colored with black splotches at the center. While they aren't technically peas, they are part of the bean family, and make an easy, hearty side dish for many great main dishes. This four-ingredient side dish lets the peas simmer and meld flavors with kielbasa, a chopped onion, and bullion cubes for a richly flavorful side dish that you can let simmer while they main dish cooks. This make ahead side can be added to any meals throughout the week. We promise the entire family will love these just as much as we do.
For a twist on this traditional recipe, add kale, corn, or collard greens, or okra. You could stuff a sweet potato with this hearty mixture. You could also add pulled pork. Black-eyed peas also make for a deliciously creamy hummus dip, casserole, fritter, jambalya, stew, salsa or rice dish addition.
