Traditional New Year’s Recipe: Black Eyed Peas were said to bring prosperity in the new year.
Oil Onion, chopped Momma’s Cajun Seasoning, to taste Garlic Powder, to taste salt & black pepper, to taste black eyed peas – enough for however many you’re cooking for water
Heat the oil in a saucepan, throw in the chopped onions and seasonings, when the onions are soft, add the black eyed peas, cover with water and leave to simmer for about an hour. The peas should be soft, but retain enough bite to not be mushy. Feel free to add meat to the dish if you so wish.
