Vegetarian Black-Eyed Peas & Rice

From The Black Family Reunion cookbook. While growing up, my grandmother, rhoda Weekes, was known among family and friends as the master of black-eyed peas and rice. You may think I'm exaggerating, but I can remember folks coming from throughout the tri-state area if they heard Mother was "cookin' up a pot." I'd watch her throw a bit of this and a dash of that into the kettle. It still warms my spirit to remember her creating her magical dish, while I kept her company in her big, beautiful kitchen. I'm no longer a meat-eater, so the following is my vegetarian version of Rhoda Weekes' black-eyed peas and rice.-Susan L. Taylor, Editor-in-Chief, Essence Magazine
