Southern Caviar aka Black Eyed Pea Salad Recipe

Over the years, I have been to several events where a special dish called "Southern Caviar" was on the buffet table. I have tried it a few times and loved it so much. If you've never tried it before, it's a flavorful and fresh dip/salsa/salad that you eat with tortilla chips. I recently got to thinking about making it myself and did a Pinterest search for recipes. I was overwhelmed by the number of recipes that popped up. I think I gave up after viewing so many and finally decided on a few that really looked delicious. I ended up using those recipes as a guide to making my own version. When I made it, I was afraid because it was A LOT. Trust me, we didn't have a whole lot left over once the family tried it. It is so good that you can't stop eating it. The best part is that it's easy to make with no cooking required, which is perfect during the hotter months. Check out the recipe below. Ingredients: 2 cans of black eyed peas (drained and rinsed) 1/2 can of black beans (drained and rinsed) 1/2 bag of thawed frozen sweet corn 1/2 cup of finely diced cucumber 1/2 of a medium red onion finely minced 1 jalapeno seeded and finely minced 1 stalk of celery finely diced 3 Roma tomatoes chopped chopped cilantro to your taste, about 3 tbsp Dressing: Kosher salt and cracked pepper to taste 5 tbsp olive oil 5 tbsp apple cider vinegar 1 1/2 tsp of sugar Place all ingredients into a large bowl. Mix dressing ingredients in a small bowl or measuring cup. Toss everything together and serve with your favorite tortilla chips. Easy, huh? You are supposed to let it sit in the fridge for a couple hours, but some of us could not wait. It is so good with the scoopable variety of tortilla chips or even corn chips. This would be perfect on top of Jasmine rice and then topped with chopped avocado as a vegetarian bowl. Yum!

Boring Beans Begone With Barbecued Black-Eyed Peas

In America, it's a tradition to eat black-eyed peas for good luck as we ring in the New Year. Just because they're beans — a statement of fact, even though they are called "peas" — doesn't mean they have to be boring. This barbecued baked black-eyed peas recipe is spi-cy (yes, that's two syllables, because this is a Southern recipe and to emphasize that this will open up your sinuses). It tastes smoky and rich, as if it's seasoned with bacon, but the flavors come from the chipotles in adobo sauce. I especially love it with grits, millet, or brown rice. Happy (almost) New Year to you and your family! Baked Barbecue Black-Eyed PeasAdapted from Vegan Soul Kitchen by Bryant Terry Ingredients1 1/2 cups dried black-eyed peas, soaked overnight 2 teaspoons plus 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided 1/2 onion, diced 1 green bell pepper, diced 2 cloves garlic, minced 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar 2 tablespoons lime juice 1/2 cup tamari or soy sauce 1 cup canned tomato sauce 1 large chipotles in adobo sauce 1/4 cup agave nectar or honey 1 tablespoon ground cumin 1 teaspoon dried thyme Directions In a large stock pot, combine black-eyed peas with enough water to cover them by two inches. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Skim off any foam, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer, partially covered, until just tender, about 50 minutes to an hour. Drain beans, reserving cooking water. Meanwhile, in a sauté pan over medium heat, combine oil, onions, and bell pepper. Sauté until the vegetables soften, about five to seven minutes. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about two minutes. Preheat the oven to 350°F. In a blender, combine the vinegar, lime juice, tamari, tomato sauce, chipotle chile, agave nectar, cumin, thyme, one cup reserved bean water, and three tablespoons olive oil. Puree until smooth, about 30 seconds. In an oven-safe sauté pan, cast-iron skillet, or two-quart baking dish, stir cooked beans, sautéed vegetables, and sauce until well incorporated. Bake uncovered for two hours, stirring occasionally. Information Category Main Dishes, BBQ Cuisine Cajun/Creole Yield Serves four to six.
