This recipe is one of my favorites from Dr. Neal Barnard's Program for Reversing Diabetes. Not only is this book a tremendous resource for diabetes and weight loss, but it also includes delicious recipes that are very low-fat and high-fiber.
Black-eyed peas with sweet potatoes and greens also has a beautiful presentation. I like to serve it on top of piping hot grits.
- Cook the greens over medium heat for 5 minutes in sauce pan; add a small amount of water if needed. Remove from sauce pan and chop.
- Return greens to sauce pan and add vegetable broth, black-eyed peas, garlic, sweet potatoes and liquid smoke.
- Cover and continue cooking over medium heat. When Vapo-Valve™ clicks, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 20 - 25 minutes.
