Directions

  1. Soak the peas overnight. Drain, and rinse the black-eyed peas.
  2. In a pot add the black-eyed peas, bay leaves, shallot, chipotle chili, and olive oil. Add just enough water to cover the peas. Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer gently until tender but not mushy, about 25-30 minutes.
  3. Add a pinch of salt and remove the shallot, chipotle and bay leaves. Drain and reserve cooking water for stock.

Chef Tips

If you choose to cook the peas without soaking, rinse them, put them in a pan with enough water to cover them by 1-inch. Add the aromatics and oil as above. Cover and cook for 45 minutes or until they are soft but not mushy. Add a little boiling water if the peas seem dry as they cook. Salt them when they are just cooked.
