Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    1 can black-eyed peas
    1 cup ham
    1 bunch fresh kale or other greens, coarsely chopped and stems removed if needed
    1 small red onion, diced
    1 cup diced celery (1 or 2 stalks)
    1 cup diced red pepper (1 medium)
    1 small can tomato sauce
    1 heaping teaspoon garlic
    1 large sweet potato, chunked
    1 jalapeno (seeded for less heat)

Directions

Saute ham (leftovers are great for this) to liquify some fat (or use olive oil), then add onion, celery, garlic and sweet red pepper. Cook until onion and garlic translucent. Meanwhile, microwave sweet potato if short on time, then remove skin and cut into large chunks. Add kale or other greens, sauteing briefly to reduce volume, then add tomato sauce and jalapeno and cover. Reduce heat to low and cook for at least 20 minutes (or until greens sufficiently soft). Makes 4 servings. Serve with cornbread or brown rice and a salad for a simple supper, or as a side dish to a holiday feast.

Number of Servings: 4
