August 28, 2018

Black Eyed Peas with Stewed Tomatoes

This recipes was adapted from the one by Tyler Florence. If you're using dried black-eyed peas instead of fresh, simply soak them in cold water overnight OR bring dried peas covered in 2 inches of water to a boil in a pot, then reduce heat and simmer for 2 minutes before removing from heat and let them soak, covered, for 1 hour.

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb of Black-Eyed Peas

  • 1 1/2 lbs of whole Tomatoes, peeled

  • 2 TBSP Extra Virgin Olive Oil

  • 1 medium Onion, chopped

  • 2 Garlic cloves, minced

  • 1 ham hock

  • 2 quarts Chicken Stock

  • Salt & Freshly Ground Pepper

Directions:

  1. Crush the tomatoes by hand into a medium sauce pan with 1/2cup of water. Cook over medium-low heat for 30 minutes, stirring frequently to avoid burning, until liquid has evaporated and tomatoes are thickened.

  2. In a large, heavy-bottomed pot, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add in the onion, garlic, and ham hock and cook until onions are soft and translucent. Add in the peas, chicken stock, cook, covered, for 20 minutes.

  3. When peas are tender, remove ham hock and fold in tomatoes. Season to taste with Salt & Pepper and serve warm.
