Someone asked for the miso recipe. I have not yet made this so you are spared any of my comments about this recipe.
This also comes from The Quick & Easy Vegetarian cookbook.
1 cup dried black-eyed peas
Rinse until clean
4 good-sized carrots, cut in 1/2 inch slices
1 large onion, chopped
2 stalks celery, cut in 1/8 inch slices
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
8 cups water
Place above ingredients in pot with black-eyed peas. Cook uncovered at fast simmer until peas start to become soft, about 50 minutes. Cover at this point so no more water evaporates
1/2 cup red, white and green pasta spirals
Add to pot and simmer until tender. Then remove pot from heat.
1 tablespoon nutritional yeast (optional)
1 teaspoon miso, softened in a few tablesppons of cooking liquid
1 teaspoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
Put in pot and stir until well mixed. May be reheated, but do not boil.
If you make this, please let me know. I bought the black-eyed peas and want to try it but I am not sure if it will happen this week as we have plenty of leftovers.
