1 T Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 Small White Onion – Minced
2 garlic cloves – minced
2 (10 oz) containers black eyed peas
5 cups vegetable broth or water
Salt & Pepper to taste
Optional – spicy sauce – Tabasco, Cholula, etc.
Optional – diced jalapenjos
Optional Side – Jiffy Corn Bread – (it’s $0.50 and super easy!)
- Select “Saute” option on InstantPot, add olive oil and heat until shimmering. Add the onions and saute, stirring occasionally, for 3-4 minutes, until translucent. Add garlic, salt & pepper, and cook for an additional minute, stirring frequently.
- Add peas & 5 cups of vegetable broth or water, enough to cover.
- Turn off of “saute” mode and set Instant Pot to Pressure cook on high for 9 minutes.
- When 9 minutes is complete, allow the pressure to naturally release, remove lid, stir, add salt & pepper to taste.
Please note, the pressure cooker will take 10 – 20 minutes to come to pressure. This is the perfect time to prep some Jiffy Corn Bread. The mix is $0.50 and easy to make. I like to bake in muffin tins.
