On New Years Day, I mentioned that I had some black eyed peas on the simmer.
Well once those black eyed peas were well cooked. I decided to cook Trini Black Eyed Peas and rice with squash. Trini being Trinidad.
Apparently eating black eyed peas on New Years Day is reputed to bring you good luck and prosperity - I cannot vouch for that, but what I do know is that I am always surprised at how much I enjoy eating black eyed peas.
Below is the dish served in the evening, when lighting is poor. I served it with some sauteed curly kale and pan-fried vegan chorizo. It was quite yummy.
