One Pot Greek Black Eyed Peas (Recipe)


✅ 1 cup dry black eyed peas

✅ ¼ cup olive oil

✅ 1 large onion chopped

✅ 2 medium carrots sliced thinly

✅ 1 ½ cup crushed tomatoes

✅ 1 bay leaf
✅ 2-3 tablespoons chopped dill

✅ parsley for serving

✅ salt/pepper


1️⃣ Soak the black eyed peas in water for about 30 minutes. After that rinse in plenty of water.

2️⃣ In a pot, heat 4 tablespoons of olive oil and sauté the chopped onion and the carrot until the onion is translucent.

3️⃣ Add the black eyed peas to the pot and sauté for 1-2 minutes.

4️⃣ Add the tomato, the bay leaf, dill and pepper and mix well.

5️⃣ Add hot water until the beans are covered (about 1 inch over).

6️⃣ Simmer for 30-40 minutes checking the water levels, add a bit of hot water as needed (about 2-3 tablespoons each time), you do not want this to be watery or like a soup, but thick. I prefer to add less water in the beginning and add as needed later.

7️⃣ The beans are ready when they are soft.

8️⃣ Remove from heat and remove the bay leaf, add salt to taste and mix.

9️⃣ Serve as is or with a sprinkle of parsley. You may also accompany it with a piece of feta.
