Black-Eyed Peas with Crispy Collard Greens

Black eyed peas with crispy collard greens is a great meal to enjoy. This is the South’s most time honored dish and you can make it your own. Regular black eyed peas will work for this dish, but if you can find Sea Island red peas, then that is a much better option to go with. The prep time is ten minutes, but you will also need to soak overnight. The cook time is 1 hour and 40 minutes.

Key Takeaways:

  • Black-eyed peas aren’t actually a pea but a bean traditionally grown in the southern US.
  • This combo is a perfect southern food dish combining two staples of this cuisine.
  • To make the greens crispy you need to roast them for 8 hours in a warm turned off oven.


“Although regular black-eyed peas will do just fine, this dish works best if you can find the heirloom variety known as Sea Island red peas.”
