Why I Love This Recipe

It's thought that the black eyed pea came from West Africa but it is widely grown throughout countries in Asia.

It is known for it's medium size and it's pale color and black spot.

It came to the state of Virginia USA in the 17th century.

Throughout Southern United States, the black eyed pea is commonly used in Soul Food.
