Just a quickie dinner with black-eyed peas, collard greens, carrots, red bell pepper, garlic, salt and pepper.  For the filling: I sautéed the greens, carrots and bell pepper with garlic in olive oil until just barely tender.  I didn’t make these peas from scratch, so it really was just a matter of adding a can-full to the pan.  The whole thing took about 4 minutes to cook, and was quite tasty.  You can add whatever protein you like, and veggies to your liking.    This time salty/peppery food tasted good, but next time I’ll likely make it spicy.

    Just made a small batch. Going back for seconds. It was great. Except – I burnt the garlic and dropped the peas on the floor. I added raisins, great for a bit of sweetness. Thanks for the recipe. You should think about naming your recipes.

    hey that’s great improvisation, nipplewit! glad you made this recipe, and posted your suggestions.

    noodles, you can definitely substitute eggo waffles. think of it as a perfect savory/sweet combo like chicken and waffles!

    don’t want to discourage creativity, but not sure about tic tacs…
