Okay, I feel that I made this dish but i did change some things. I used canned black-eyed peas instead of dried, frozen greens instead of fresh, and grape tomatoes instead of the regular sized ones. I also used potatoes instead of turnips because I had no turnips. (I used what I had in the house.) This is really a good recipe! I followed your instructions except for the dried bean part. The vinaigrette dressing added just the right sweet and acid for the greens. I did add a little red pepper to mine because I like red pepper in greens but this was a super recipe without it! By the way, using the canned peas, my dish was done in about 20 minutes.

I used potato instead of turnips (I had none)and it worked out well. I added smoked sea salt at the end of cooking. It was a quick and easy recipe and is super filling with brown rice. I also made the balsamic vinaigrette at home so Yum!

I used kale instead of collards. The combination of turnips and black eyed peas along with the greens is delicious! This is easy to make! Great recipe!
