I made this twice. The first I followed the recipe, tasted good and I don't mind the messy way the black eyed peas sits on top of the polenta. The second time I made the polenta from scratch. In the black eyed peas I also added red bell peppers, garlic and some sun dried tomato due to not having fresh. OMG...it was AWESOME...
Good meatless meal with lots of flavor. Easy to make and inexpensive.
I love the flavors in this recipe and have made it twice now. I only wish there was a way to serve these in a less messy way. I might toy around with making my own polenta and refrigerating / shaping using mini-tart pans. In that way, by removing the center of each tart, it would act as a "cup" in which this topping could be served. Very tasty recipe, though!
Great recipe. I actually served it as a lunch entree with a green salad.
