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.
