midnight snack….cabbage and black eye peas

i got a major craving for a bean based soup. i thought about what i had in the fridge and chose frozen black eye peas and cabbage. 2 high flavor, high fiber foods. fiber is SOOOO important for your diet. especially women. did you know we’re supposed to have like 30 grams of fiber a day? and i promise if you start eating it, you will more than likely lose weight. you’d think i’d follow my own advice and after tonight i will!!

i seriously ate the entire pot!

this was supposed to be soup, but last minute i decided to add some rice.

cabbage and black eye peas

2 tablespoons coconut oil

clove garlic, minced

2 cups finely diced cabbage

handful finely diced onions

1/2 cup rice

1lb. frozen black eye peas

drizzle olive oil

– put oil and garlic into pot. turn to medium heat. dice your cabbage and onion and add into pot. salt and pepper. after about a minute add uncooked rice and let all cook for another 2 minutes.i drizzled some olive and then sprinkled a tiny bit of chicken bouillon(next time i plan to use veggie stock) and then about 2.5 cups of water. cover and turn to low. 30 minutes for al dente peas(yum!) and about 45 minutes for fully cooked.

    That looks & sounds sooo good!! I’m definitely going to be trying this very soon! Where do you find coconut oil though? I can’t say that I have ever seen that with the other oils..

      our first container was $16 from obie’s pet shop cause he eats it with his food(GREAT FOR DOGS!), but when we ran out we didn’t have$16 and THEN we found it at walmart. double the size and only $6. now, its not organic, but its pure.
