Being a Southerner by birth (and in heart) along with a new Vegan – I HAD to make some black eye peas.
And how extra sa-weet that they actually cook AMAZINGLY in a crock-pot! Ya’ll know I SUPER DUPER L♥VE my crock-pot. So here is my recipe – although there are many variations out there for you carnivores. Honestly (and even Brian agreed) they tasted so *meaty* and delish like this and Brian swore I used some salt pork – but oh-no! No animals were harmed or consummed by making this crock-pot piece of heaven!

Vegetarian Black Eye Peas

1 lb dried black eye peas
4 cups vegetable broth
1 bay leaf
1 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
1 large onion chopped

Follow directions on black eye peas packaging for overnight soaking. Drain and place in crock pot and add broth, bay leaf, salt and pepper. Cook on low for nine hours. Add chopped onion and cook on low for one more hour. Serve over rice with the garnish (hot sauce, fresh chopped parsley, green onion) of your choice.


I will be making this again and often – easy, healthy (155 calories & 1 gram of fat per cup), and delish – YES! YES! YES!!!!

Eat up!


  1. MmmmmMmmm sounds fab! Love me some crock pot cookin!

  2. The only things I cook that are edible come out of the crock pot. I will definitely be giving this one a go!!! Thanks!

  3. Oh that looks delicious. I actually have some black eyed peas in the cupboard waiting to find some kind of creative recipe. I think I found it!

  4. Crock pot cooking is the best way to make dinner.
    I like that I do not have to slave away during the summer days over a hot stove. I come home to the best smells and it is ready to eat.

  5. Oh YUM!! That sounds amazing!
    I've NEVER tried black eye peas but the first time I'll be this recipe!
