black eyed peas
rinsed and drained
salt and black pepper
leftover fish grease
or drizzle of olive oil
Rinse and drain the black eyed peas. Add the beans to a 2 qt sauce pan and pour in the cup of water.
Season the black eyed peas with the liquid smoke, salt, pepper and smoked paprika. Bring the beans to a slight boil.
Now give the pan a good stir while slowly pouring in the leftover fish grease (or olive oil).
Cover the pan and simmer on low until the beans are tender and the juice thickens.
Stir the pan every 10-15 minutes to make sure that the beans are not sticking and that the liquid doesn't cook out. Add more water and seasoning as needed.
Dried or frozen black eyed peas may be used instead of canned. If using dried peas, a half of pound should work well for this recipe.
If you 're Vegetarian or Vegan, simply replace the fish grease with a drizzle of olive oil to add some grease to the dish. It will still be flavorful and delicious.
