Recipe: Popeye Suprise
I don't really know what to call this dish. It's ridiculously simple yet VERY flavorful and filling. It's also very low in calories and virtually fat-free. The perfect food so to speak!
2 cans black-eyed peas* (or 1/2 lb bag of dried beans, reconstituted)
1 9 oz bag organic spinach, slightly chopped (like each leaf cut in half)
1 cup double strength vegetable broth
1 small red onion
2 tsp salt
1/2 Tb EVOO
Chop red onion and lightly sautee in olive oil. Once the onions are just slightly browned, add vegetable broth and beans. Simmer for 3-5 minutes or until beans are hot. Add the spinach, cover, and simmer for another 3-5 minutes until spinach is wilted. Add salt, stir, and serve.
*I have found that some grocery stores only have black-eyed peas in cans and some only have them dry, it's a bit inconsistent, but you can use either version. If you have a pressure cooker the dried beans will only take about 25 minutes to rehydrate.
