Black-Eyed Peas recipes

Carnival of the Recipes #175

New Year’s Day and New Year’s Eve Traditions

Cooking for New Year’s Day and New Year’s Eve tends to be a random affair punctuated by comfort food and easy to prepare meals to be eaten at parties and in front of the television.

One of the most well-known traditions is that Black-eyed peas are traditionally eaten on New Year’s Day, often with collard greens or mustard greens. The tradition indicates that the eating of black eyed peas will bring good luck and fortune.

With that in mind, we have a couple of Black Eyed Peas Recipes submitted by various members of the Carnival of the Recipes.

Shawn Lea presents her Recipe for good luck in the new year with … Stewed Black-Eyed Peas posted at Everything And Nothing.

Black Eyed Peas

Famous Recipes presents new year’s eve recipes – New Year’s Eve Black-Eyed Peas Recipe | World Famous Recipes posted at Famous Recipes.

And here are a couple of more Black Eyed Pea Recipes for good measure:

Black-Eyed Peas with Garlic and Kale Recipe

1 1/2 lbs. kale, washed and drained
1 T. olive or other vegetable oil
1 T. chopped fresh garlic, or more to taste Pinch of dried red pepper
2 C. canned or cooked black-eyed peas
1 T. cider vinegar, or to taste

Pull the kale leaves from the tough stems. Discard the stems and chop the leaves into one-inch pieces. Place about two inches of water in a large pot and heat to boiling. Add the kale, cover and cook until tender, stirring occasionally, 15 to 20 minutes.

Drain. Reserve the water for soup, if desired. In a large non-stick skillet, combine the oil and garlic. Cook the garlic over low heat, stirring, until it begins to sizzle, about two minutes. Add the peas and red pepper and cook until blended, stirring, about three minutes. Add the kale and stir to blend over low heat. Add the cider vinegar just before serving. Serve hot or at room temperature.
Serves 6.

Black Eyed Peas with Ham

Eating black eyed peas on New Year’s Eve is supposed to bring you luck, or so says Southern tradition. Why leave it to chance when you can cook up a delicious pot of black eyed peas instead?

Cooking black eyed peas at a low simmer instead of a boil will keep the skins from bursting and give the dish a better appearance. Also add salt after cooking is complete as it can make the beans tough.

3 1/2 C canned or frozen (and thawed) black-eyed peas thawed
3 C chicken stock or canned low-salt broth
4 oz finely chopped ham
1 C onion, chopped
2 T balsamic or red wine vinegar
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 bay leaf
1/2 tsp thyme
1/4 tsp (more to taste) crushed red pepper
pepper to taste

Serves 6

Bring all ingredients to boil in heavy large saucepan. Reduce heat to a low simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until peas are tender, about 45 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

Carnival of the Recipes – Happy New Year Edition

Carnival of the Recipes

 Carnival of the Recipes- Say Goodbye to 2006 Edition


Bernadette at booklore has been working hard to make sure our new year is full of great recipes, and the Carnival of the Recipes is now up for your viewing pleasure:      Next week’s Carnival will be hosted by Trudy at Elementary Chef ( Submit your favorite recipes to by noon CST on Saturday. If you’re interested in hosting a future carnival send a message to the same address with the word host in the subject line. (There’s a good New Year’s resolution for those who have been lurking in the background. “This year, I will host a Carnival of the Recipes edition!”) ;)   Happy New Year to all of you. Thanks so much for making our Carnival of the Recipes such a great resource for all of us.   For a line-up of future Carnivals , visit our Carnival of the Recipes page on Blog Carnival. You can also review all past Carnival of the Recipes there too.


To begin with, we’ve got Chicken RecipesChicken Prosciutto With Mushroom Sauce.

Cue the drool.

For many people, it’s not New Year’s without BLACK-EYED PEAS. And when I say many, I do mean it.

You could have Everything and Nothing’s Stewed Black-Eyed Peas. She’s from Mississippi, so I’ll assume this is a traditional Southern recipe. And do check out the rest of her blog- she must cook like a madwoman.

You could have World-Famous Recipes’New Year’s Eve Black-Eyed Peas, a simple take on a classic. They also have Spicy Black-Eyed Pea Soup for those who’d like a different take on the subject. (By the way, they got mentioned in a New York Times article! (reg-free repost))

And Chicken Recipes thinks you can have your black-eyed peas with chicken. Sounds good to me!

Recipes Recipe submitted Nian Gao- Baked Chinese New Year Cake. Yes, Chinese New Year isn’t for a month or so. But then, I’m not Chinese either, and I betting most of you aren’t, so feel free to use this recipe now!

Happy New Year.

New Year’s Eve

Black-eyed peas

This is a traditional New Years Eve Recipe dish eaten on New Year’s Eve for good luck in the New Year.


Corn Bread
chopped onions
Boiled egg – one per searving

Crumble up one or two slices of cornbread onto a large plate ( or better yet, a pie plate!)

Sprinkle liberally with chopped onions

Chop boiled egg into small pieces and add to cornbread and onions

Top with black-eyed peas and plently of pea broth ( as the cornbread will absorb the liquid quite readily)

Mix all thoroughly

Add salt and/or pepper to taste.
