EXCELLENT! I'm a vegetarian and have been trying to mix it up with new recipes that work for both my omnivore guy and me. This is a keeper! SUBS: I used veggie bac-un for the ham, I used brown rice vs. white, I used vegan vegetable stock vs water. ADDS: I doubled the amount of black eyed peas (3C), then added smoked paprika & turmeric (2T ea), and a pinch of liquid smoke to the seasonings; added 1/2 a large bag of frozen spinach (3C) to the mix when adding the peas. WONDERFUL. SIMPLE. AWESOME.

This is really, really good! So easy too. I used drained canned black eyed peas, more ham than was called for. (I had a bunch of leftover ham from the holidays) Added a few red pepper flakes and a healthy shake of Cajun seasoning. Delicious and it is ready to just minutes. Did I say this is a KEEPER? Yes, it is!
