Yield: 4 servings
|2 cups||Black eyed peas|
|3 teaspoons||Ground coriander|
|3||Garlic cloves, minced|
|3 tablespoons||Fresh ginger, grated|
|½||Red pepper, chopped OR cayenne to taste|
Soak peas. Put in a pot with water to cover, plus 1 inch & add coriander, garlic, ginger & red pepper. Cook for a little over 1 hour or until still a little chewy.
While the peas are cooking, prepare a dressing by mixing together oil, vinegar, salt & parika. Use 2:1 oil-vinegar ratio & add seasonings according to taste. Add to peas as soon as you remove them from the heat. Allow to cool to room temperature & adjust seasoning then serve.
