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

VEGAN

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)

Ingredients:
  • 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
Directions:

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.

  1. I love sweet potatoes and black-eyed peas but never tried to combine them ... sounds interesting and would give it a try. I usually like to make a quick stir-fry with sweet potatoes, and usually with the peel, as many of the nutrients are just beneath the peel. You can find the recipe here;
