These Sloppy Black-Eyed Peas are one of my favorite recipes from my third cookbook, Vegan Slow Cooking for Two or Just You. It’s full of good-for-you ingredients and it takes very little hands on time.
The black-eyed peas cook down in your 1 1/2 to 2 quart slow cooker into a thick stew as they meld with the Cajun seasoning and veggies to create a New Orleans–inspired Sloppy Joe.
It’s great inside a bun or ladled over an open-faced bun. Millet has a slightly sweet taste and adds some extra iron and protein, as well as making it more hearty. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
