Hottie Black-Eyed Peas and Greens

This recipe is from the vegan cookbook Appetite for Reduction by Isa Chandra Moskowitz.

Recipe: see page 119 of Appetite for Reduction.
This recipe has three of my favorites: black-eyed peas, kale, and hot sauce. It calls for canned
black-eyed peas, but that adds a lot of sodium that I can live without, so I used frozen instead. The kale is fresh from my garden. Collards can also be used.

Black-eyed peas and kale are excellent sources of calcium. Yep, you can get calcium from sources other than cow's milk.

Ingredients: black-eyed peas, kale (or collards), onion, garlic, olive oil, tomato sauce, vegetable broth, hot sauce, liquid smoke, salt.

The Hottie Black-Eyed Peas and Greens also pairs well with the Ginger Mashed Sweet Potatoes and Apples on page 63:
