By January 2, 2015

Submitted by Marie

I adapted this simple recipe for two people and it was perfect.


  • 1/2 lb bag black eyed dried peas(use only 1/2 bag of peas; from a 1 pound bag)
  • 3 1/2 cups water or broth of your choice
  • 1/2 bag diced frozen onions (1 1/2 cups)
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon oregano or other spice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons table salt


  • press bean/chili button
  • use natural steam release method
  • makes very tender beans, my husband loved them!! and I did, too.

    Love this recipe! I make it with chicken stock, summer savory, oregano, pepper, ham, bacon or pork.

    I add a few strips of bacon (chopped) to my pot (saluted) for a few minutes (while preparing my peas). This will add the southern touch to them.

    Great Idea! My husband suggested I add some pork, so the next time I am going to add some chopped celery and a ham hock. The bacon sounds perfect, yet I am allergic to bacon ; ( not ham, just the bacon….must be the additives…I miss eating chocolate covered bacon….
