EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

The bean of the cowpea, black-eyed peas are very popular in the southern U.S. This little legume gets its name from the black circular mark located on its inner curved edge.

It's important to boil black-eyed peas uncovered for 2 minutes before cooking (see step 2) because it destroys an enzyme that can make some people ill.
