Happy New Year! Black Eyed Peas With Kale

4 Jan

My husband insists on us eating black eye peas on New Years Day (bleh).  I try to find a way to make them that I will easily eat them.  The goal is to eat as many as you can.  The tradition is, the more you eat, the wealthier your year will be.  So after researching many recipes, I created the following (and we ate the whoooooole thing):

4 large cloves of garlic, minced
1 red onion, diced
2 organic carrots, diced
2 small red bell peppers, diced
2 cans of BEP, discard liquid
2 heads of Kale, deveined and torn to pieces

Mince the garlic and add to a warm pan with olive oil. Saute until you really smell the garlic.  Then add the onion.  Saute until soft.  Add carrots and peppers.  Saute until everything is to a desired texture.  Add peas and kale.  Stir/cook until kale is still a nice green, yet wilted.

Serve over brown rice and enjoy the wealth that the upcoming year brings :)
