Fresh Black Eyed Pea

This is one of the types of cowpeas available. Shuck the peas from the pod and braise for a stew or soup or simmer and add for a salad. Fresh black-eyed peas have an earthy-nutty- flavor and creamy texture once cooked. The best substitutes for the fresh black-eyed pea would be the Fresh Purple Hull Pea and the Fresh Sea Island Red Pea.
