Ingredients

1 cup dried black-eyed peas

1 bay leaf

1/4 tsp flaky salt

4 cups water (plus extra for soaking)

Directions

Add a cup of dried black-eyed peas to a bowl.Cover them with boiling water and allow them to soak for 15 minutes. Drain.

Add soaked black-eyed peas, 4 cups of cold water, a bay leaf and a pinch of salt to the cooking pot. Bring to a rolling boil on high heat.

Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer uncovered for 30 minutes. Stir gently occasionally to ensure that the beans aren't sticking to the bottom of the pot.

Remove from heat and test if the beans are cooked by squishing one between your fingers. It should be tender but still, have a firm bite.

Drain into a colander placed on top of the bowl and cool completely before using in your recipes.
