Anyone with Southern roots knows that if you want good luck, you must eat black-eyed peas, pork, and greens on January 1st. I’m dropping the pork but I’ll definitely have a bowl of black-eyed peas with a side salad. Here is my quick and easy recipe.
Italian Black-Eyed Peas:
1 packet of Italian seasoning
1 pound bag of black-eyed peas,
4 to 6 slices of turkey bacon cut into pieces
1 diced medium onion
4 chopped cloves of garlic
Parsley and oregano
Turmeric & nutritional yeast (optional)
*Put everything in a slow cooker. Don’t add salt because there’s plenty in the Italian seasoning and vegetable broth. Set Crockpot on low and let it cook for 4 to 5 hours. I put a little cilantro on top of the dish when I serve it. Enjoy.
Have a blessed New Year,
