When Mom’s says “Eat your beans”, you are glad she cooked your favorite. According to a study of nearly ten thousand Americans, a diet containing at least 300 micrograms of the B vitamin folate (found in beans) reduces the risk of stroke and heart disease.


  • 1 lbs dried black-eyed peas
  • 1 lbs Cajun smoked sausage, cut bite-sized
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 or 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper
  • salt to taste
  • 3 to 4 chopped scallions (green onion)


Step 1

Pick (remove any bad peas) and wash peas.

Step 2

Combine in a sauce pan with sausage, water, seasonings, onions and pepper.

Step 3

Cover and simmer over low flame for 1 to 1 1/2 hours, or until tender. Add water if needed. You want to have enough water to make thick gravy.
