Stewed Black Eyed Peas

A very satisfying meal, great for those who have less time handy and want to eat something healthy, home made and delicious. This was done in no time, quick and easy, and a great weekend meal for all especially vegetarians! Only thing to remember is to soak the peas overnight or for at least eight hours.  Want to make it to a soup? Simply add another cup of water or vegetable broth and enjoy!! Don’t forget to eat it with the corn bread!!
