1 Seeded and Stemmed Jalapeno or Serano Chili Diced (optional)
3-4 Cups Water
Fresh Ground Pepper
Rinse, pick through and soak the peas in cold water overnight or quick soak them with boiling water for 1 hour. Put the peas in a thick bottom pot with 2 cups water, 1 teaspoon salt and the meat and cook for 1 hour. Sauté the onions and herbs in butter until soft. Add them to the pot with the remaining ingredients and 3 cups water. Bring to a boil then simmer for 30 minutes or until the peas are soft. Taste and season with pepper.
Meet the Vegan Savory Sage Stuffed Peppers—a nod to the flavors of my childhood with a plant-based spin. These ruby-red peppers are roasted and generously filled with a vegan sausage made from whole grains and savory herbs.
This very simple dish lets the flavor of these amazing heirloom field peas shine. Steeped in history, Sea Island Red Peas are a more flavorful and diminutive cousin to black eyed peas and are grown only on the Carolina Sea Islands.
