I know I’m a little early, but here’s a little bit different way to get your black-eyed peas for New Year’s Day.
1 lb black-eyed peas, drySoak beans overnight. Drain and return to pot; cover with water and add
5 cloves garlicBring to a boil and then reduce heat and let simmer until peas are soft. Drain and spread out on a baking sheet; cool to room temperature. Put the peas and garlic in a food processor and add
2 tablespoons of sugar
2/3 cup tahiniTurn on the machine and stream in
1/4 cup lemon juice
salt and pepper
olive oilslowly until the mixture has the consistency you want. I’ve never measured how much oil I add. You will process the mixture for four or five minutes.
Spoon out into a bowl and serve with pita chips or crackers. I like to garnish it with tear jerkers for a little extra something.
