Hopping John Recipe #2

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound black-eyed peas -- dry
  • 7 cups water
  • 2 cups onions -- coarse chop
  • 8 garlic cloves
  • 1 cup carrots -- sliced
  • 1 cup celery -- diced
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper -- or more to taste
  • 3 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp salt -- or to taste
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 3 scallions

Preparation:

Soak the beans overnight (or at least 4 hours). Drain the soaking water, and cover with fresh water. Cook the beans until tender (about 30 min to an hour.) If using a pressure cooker, rinse the peas and cook at full pressure to 5-7 minutes.

In a separate pot, steam "saute" the onions until caramelized, adding a little water and stirring at regular intervals until they are cooked down by about 60%. This takes about 30 minutes.

Add the chopped celery and carrots to the onions, cook until tender. Then, add the cooked black-eyed peas, cayenne pepper, salt, and vinegar, adding the water the beans were cooked in so the consistency is that of a sauce or very thick soup. Cook an additional 5 minutes or so. Serve over rice.

Note: The addition of red/yellow/and green bell pepper when adding the carrots and celery would be good too.

  • Date: Wed, 31 Dec 1997 18:25:08 -0800 From: "C. Martin" (Charisa@MoonstruckMuses.com) I just made this using a pressure cooker to cook the black-eyed peas (less than 7 minutes without soaking the beans). The whole dish takes just under an hour to prepare if you take the time to caramelize the onions.
