• 1 onion
  • water/broth for saute
  • 1 15oz can peeled tomatoes, drained or equivalent amount of fresh tomatoes (~1.5 cups)
  • 1 15oz can Black Eye Peas, drained
  • 2 cups cooked white rice (I used a mixture of white/brown basmati)
  • Salt, pepper, garlic powder for seasoning


Chop the onion and saute it in a good size frying pan with the broth. If you are using fresh tomatoes, add them and cook until they are soft. Stir in the remaining ingredients and heat through.

Makes about 3-4 servings, as a main course casserole

NOTES: Don’t drain the tomatoes and black-eyes completely. You need a little “juice” to make it a nice mushy (comforting) casserole.
