Although I love legumes and try to eat as often as I can, I have to admit that I do not particularly like black-eyed peas. I find their taste a little flat…That notion changed a few days ago when I came up with this recipe. I made a red pepper pesto which was delicious and coated the peas with it. Suddenly they were transformed! We liked them a lot! You can enjoy them as a salad or main course. Do try them and I am sure you will love them!

Have a lovely weekend, my dear friends!
