Black Eyed Peas and Collards


Serves FourRecipe from Good and Cheap, by Leanne Browne. Her entire cookbook can be downloaded for free here: www.leannebrown.ca/good-and-cheap.pdf   This is similar to the southern classic Hoppin’ John. If you have them, you can add more vegetables to the base along with the onion—celery, carrot, bell pepper, or some canned tomato would all be great in this. If you want to skip the bacon, just add smoked paprika to replace the smoky flavor. INGREDIENTS: 1 cup dried black-eyed peas 1 tbsp butter 1 large onion, finely chopped 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped 3 strips bacon, cut into small pieces (optional) 1 bay leaf 1 large bunch collards salt and pepper PROCESS: Soak the black-eyed peas overnight in 4 cups of [...]
