BLACK-EYED PEAS

Start the new year off with a delicious, healthy, hearty bowl of black-eyed peas. It may even bring you good luck. Serve as is or over a bed of rice.

WHAT YOU'LL NEED

1 lb. dried black-eyed peas

4 cups chicken broth
2 - 14 oz. cans, diced, fire-roasted tomatoes
4 scallions, chopped (optional)

HOW YOU'LL MAKE IT

Clean and rinse the dried peas. Put them in a large pot and add enough water to cover peas with about 4 inches of water. Soak overnight or use quick soak method by bringing to a boil for 2 minutes. Remove from heat, cover and soak for an hour. Rinse, drain and set aside.
