    Less oil-more spices and serve with cornbread or over rice for a complete protein. Frozen purple hulls or crowder peas work just as well. - 1/2/08

    I soaked dried black-eyed peas instead of using frozen. Also I sprayed with Misto so used less oil, & I added a green pepper & seasoned with Mrs. Dash & cayenne pepper. Quite yummy! - 12/29/07

    The recipe was a bit confusing because the listed ingredients say to drain the canned tomatoes but the body of the recipe says to include the tomato liquid. I chose to do the latter and even though I don't like black eyed peas this recipe is great! Thanks for sharing it. - 12/31/08

    A little bland and I found that it could have used more liquid to cook in- next time will try with more spices and tomato maybe. But still a good dish to try! - 2/3/09

    This recipe sounds interesting. I like the idea of using dried black-eyed peas instead of frozen or canned. I would also serve it over brown rice to complete the protein. - 12/30/08

    It's a great meal, freezes well too! One time I added a few little smoklies cut up, or course that makes it non vegan! - 12/28/08

  • This recipe was great. Instead of the stewed tomatoes, I used diced tomatoes with chiles. I love the spice. - 1/4/11

  • That's great. I usually saute' of my vegetables in this manner, with tomatoes on the side, never in the mix. But actually mixing tomatoes in, is not a bad idea.

    I love it. I'll do it often but with a bit less onions & w/powdered garlic & basil instead of the cloves. Also, skip on the salt. - 1/14/10

  • Sounds like a winner - but I'll take the advice of others and add some basil, fennel seeds for more flavor.
    Thanks! - 1/4/10
