Bowl:  Brown Rice (underneath) with Creole Blackeye Peas
Plate Clockwise from top: Home made Corn Bread (recipe in the book “Vegan Comfort Food”) and Caramel Apples

Honestly, I couldn’t taste it at all….but, the kids liked it (both going for seconds). 
Next time, when I make the corn bread, I will make half a recipe….it was very thick and gooey….not quite the consistency that I want.  The flavor, according to the kids, was YUMMY!!

Creole Black-eyed Peas1 large onion, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1 rib celery, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups dried black-eyed peas, picked over and rinsed
5 cups water
15 ounce can diced tomatoes
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
1/8 teaspoon cayenne (or more to taste)
1 tablespoon hot sauce (or to taste)
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon Liquid Smoke flavoring

Soak the peas overnight in cold water. Drain. Over high heat, sauté the onion until it begins to brown; add the bell pepper, celery, and garlic and cook for another 2 minutes. Then add all ingredients except liquid smoke to the pot, along with enough additional water to cover the peas by one inch. Cook until peas are completely tender, about 1 1/2 to 2 hours, adding more water as necessary. When they’re tender, add the Liquid Smoke, cook for 5 more minutes, and serve over rice.
