Vegan Black Eyed Peas Recipe


vegan black eyed peas

Black-eyed peas are a popular food throughout the world. It is an inappropriate name to call them peas, since they are actually beans. Said to have been originally domesticated in West Africa, black-eyed peas are grown in Asia, Africa, the southern states of the US, and in many other countries. Some of the names that are called black-eyed peas include doughnut, lobia, chè đậu trắng, rongi, alsande, kalu, akara, kacang and tolo, just to name a few.

Although traditional black-eyed pea recipes require the use of salt pork to season the nutritious legume, this recipe is vegan. As a tasty dish, this dish is served hot, however, there are recipes for black-eyed pea salad that are served cold.
