Cow Peas and Rice

Cow Peas and Broccoli

This is veganized from the back of a bag of Goya cow peas.

Soak and drain (see beans):

  • 1/2 lb. dry cow peas

In a large saucepan, cook in oil until onion is tender and sausage has firmed up a bit or browned:

  • 1/4 lb. vegan sausage (I used Gimme Lean), in small chunks
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • sweet potato, diced (optional)


  • the drained peas
  • 3 c water
  • 1 t salt
  • 1/4 t ground pepper

Bring to a boil, then simmer until peas are tender, about 40 min.  Add water if necessary.  Serve over brown rice (2 c of rice cooked in 4 c of water should be enough).
