    • Hi Henrietta,

      I used Melissa’s pre-steamed black eyed peas. But you could use any type. If you use frozen, just thaw them then follow the listed instructions. If you use dry, soak them overnight then cook them in water overnight then drain. Cook them in boiling water just until they begin to soften but aren’t mushy. Drain then follow the instructions.

      If you’ve ever seen the directions for oven roasted chickpeas, these follow the same instructions.

      Easiest thing is to buy the Melissa’s pre-cooked. You can find them at Trader Joe’s and some other higher end grocers.

      Hope you enjoy these. They’re ridiculously addicting.

  • Black eyed peas are terrific! I’ve roasted them before, but for New Year’s I’m pretty old school – gotta have them with collard greens. ;-) But these looks wonderful – thanks.

  • I married and moved to Tennessee to start college without ever meeting the inlaws. I met them on New Year’s Eve and when his mother said I had to eat a cup of black eyed peas or we would all suffer financially, I laughed. I told her I didn’t eat them.

    She began crying and wailing that I was going to ruin the family. One must remember to always meet the inlaws before saying I do.

    I have since learned to enjoy black eyed peas – and Creole spices would make me happy indeed. And prosperous, according to my ex MIL.

    • Hi Maureen!

      Good thing you ate those black eyed peas back then. ;) I completely agree with you on the meeting of the in-laws. The sooner the better. LOL I didn’t marry into any of those “must eat” things…but there are others…there always are…LOL

  • Hands down the best photograph I have seen of a dish that is notoriously impossible to photograph.

    • Thanks Sarah!

      It’s a lot easier to photograph these when they’re roasted. They do tend to look like a bit of a slimy mess when you try to take a picture of them in a bowl of Hoppin’ John. ;)
