Grandma Maud’s Texas

1 – 6.2 oz. Grandma Maud’s Black-eyed Peas
Bean Meal
4 cups water
4 medium green onions, finely chopped
1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper (the size of peas)
1 cup chopped green bell pepper (the size of peas)
1/4 cup minced red onion
1/2-teaspoon balsamic vinegar
1/2-teaspoon apple cider vinegar
1-teaspoon olive oil
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard


Begin cooking peas by combining 3 cups of water to the
contents of one package of Grandma Maud’s Black-eyed Peas Bean Meal.

While the peas are cooking, put the chopped green onions,
peppers, and red onions in a large bowl.   In a small bowl, whisk together
the vinegars, oil, and mustard. Continue boiling for 15 minutes.

When the peas are cooked, stir in a cup of water, rinse,
drain, and toss them with the other vegetables.   Pour the dressing over
them, and toss.   Taste and add salt if desired.

For a little kick, add chopped jalapeno pepper to mixture.
Serve as a side dish or scooped on top of crackers
