Instant Pot Black-Eyed Pea Gumbo

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

5 carrots

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.

  1. Thanks for this Rachel! I haven’t tried beans yet but this might be a good recipe to try them with.
