Kale+Black Eyed Pea Stew
In the rush of the season, it’s good to be tempted by books and luscious photos.
Making the almighty “what’s for dinner” question resolve, I made this stew from the earlier reviewed:
Superfood Cuisine by Julie Morris.
Of course I mentioned wanting to try it, and a few of the commenters did too!
The recipe was straightforward and although I didn’t have wakame on hand, the book has a handy list of substitutions to suggest in its place.
My stew didn’t look anything like her photo, red and warm; quite the opposite really.
I found the stew to be heavy on the onion and I wasn’t sure where the colour went and It really needed that hit of lemon juice at the end and the recipe didn’t call for salt, so I put out some of my salish, smoked salt. For a little more meal, I added some sesame marinaded tofu which I’d diced, which just hit the spot. All in all it was an easy and pretty quick, hearty meal on a chilly December afternoon.
Do you want to try this or another of the recipes? Julie Morris and her publisher have offered to help with your Holiday shopping by offering a copy to one of my readers.
Leave a comment, maybe let me know what I should make for dinner next.
