Easy and protein packed dinner. Hearty comfort food.
Black-Eyed Pea Gumbo:
To start sort 1 lb of dried black-eyed peas.
Add the black-eyed peas to the Instant Pot along with….
1 tsp of salt
1/2 tsp pepper
10 cups of water
8 homemade chicken bullion cubes. (If you don’t have the homemade bullion cubes, add 8-10 cups of chicken broth.)
Cook on high pressure for 25 minutes.
While the peas cook chop the following…
1 cup onion
3/4 cup celery
1 cup green bell pepper
4-5 red chard stems (optional)
Quick release the black-eyed peas, and add in all the chopped veggies. The liquid should be at the same level as the vegetables. Add 1-2 cups more water if needed.
Cook on high pressure for 2 minutes. Quick release.
Stir in chopped chicken, or some other leftover meat. I used leftover turkey here. Or leave the meat out if you want a vegetarian meal.
