Serves 4 to 6
- 1 cup dried black-eyed peas
- 3 cups water
- 1/4 yellow onion, finely chopped
- 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
- 1 strip kombu
- Sea salt or Sea Veg
Methods Of Preparation:
- In a medium bowl, add the black-eyed peas and cover with 3 cups of water. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap or top with a plate and allow to soak on your kitchen counter for at least 4 hours, ideally overnight.
- The next day, drain the black-eyed peas and rinse under cold water. Add them to a medium pot, along with the chopped onion, apple cider vinegar, strip of kombu, and enough water so the black-eyed peas’ surface is covered by about 3 inches. Bring the mixture to a boil, and then reduce the heat to a simmer. Cover the pot and cook until the beans are tender, about 1 hour. Mix in about a teaspoon of sea salt or Sea Veg; give it a taste and adjust the salt accordingly.
