Let black-eyed peas create an earthy broth for this hearty vegetable stew. Make it now to have easy, healthy meals when you need them: after a beach weekend, a lazy Sunday, or lunch anytime. Consider bringing it to a family potluck too. Black-Eyed Vegetable Stew costs just $1.08 a serving using organic ingredients.
I created this Something-For-Nothing recipe to use the green leaves of leeks, which many recipes tell you to throw away. The price calculator I use says leeks are only 44% edible! I’d say it’s well over 90%. Use all green leaves for this if you want and save the tender white ends for a more delicate dish, like this Vegan Vichyssoise from Cilantro and Citronella. And of course you’ll be eating every drop of the broth from the black-eyed peas. You don’t need to buy vegetable broth to make vegetable soup.
