No Meat Zone Recipes: Black-Eyed Peas Meet a Sweet Potato


The Black-Eyed Peas Meet a Sweet Potato

Microwave a sweet potato for 5 - 6 minutes (or bake it, if you’re inclined.) Split and fluff the potato and add JL’s Black-Eyed Peas in the Rice Cooker. Top with diced avocado and raw onion and salt to taste.

JL’s Black-Eyed Peas in the Rice Cooker (Serves 2-3)

  • 1 c dried black-eyed peas
  • 4 c of water
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 T dulse flakes
  • 1 T earth balance
  • 1 T Sriracha
  • ¼ t black pepper

Rinse the black-eyed peas and place them, along with all of the other ingredients, in the rice cooker in the morning. Set the rice cooker timer to begin shortly before you plan to arrive home (for me 6pm which allowed for 10 hours of “soaking”) on the ‘regular’ cycle. Cooking time is 1 to 1 and 1/2 hours.
