I just wondered if the type of beans is vital to the dish? I have just about every other legume you can imagine, except black-eyed peas. I'm willing to try the black-eyed peas, but would only be buying them for this dish. Linda

Linda, Black beans or pintos would also work well.

Do you soak black-eyes peas before cooking? I have read both yes and no. Also, to obtain 3 cups of peas do I need to start with 1.5 cups dry. Thanks for the recipe, it looks yum!

Sue, Click on cooked black-eyed peas above (in red) and it will take you to a recipe for cooking peas. I prefer to soak them to lessen cooking time. One cup of dry beans will usually yield 3 cups of cooked beans.

@ Sara, Steve doesnt need an apron. REAL men dont need them. ;-)

Made this for dinner tonight with cheesy grits and braised greens...wow! It was so good! Can't wait to eat it again as leftovers tomorrow for lunch.

I followed the link to cooking the peas, but was a little confused over how much liquid to use. The link says use juice of one orange plus water to make 1 cup. Is that right? Only one cup of liquid for one cup of soaked beans? Doesn't soaking 1 cup of beans increase the volume to 2-3 times their size, making about 2-3 cups of bean? If that's the case, would 1 cup of liquid be enough to cook the beans? Sorry for my confusion.

Good catch Chris. I corrected the pdf link. OJ plus enough water to make 2 cups!

That was killer. Made with andouille sausage, cheesy corn grits and braised bok choy and kale from the garden. Everyone loved it, and my 3 year old cleaned her plate, much to my delight! Did wish I had a nice blob of sour cream, though...
