Recipe

Black-Eyed Peas & Walnut Lettuce Wraps

Lettuce wraps save on calories, but not on taste. Mix black eyed peas with walnuts and serve taco style. You can always use tortillas for the kids.

Times

  • Prep Time : 5 min
  • Cook Time : 40 min
  • Ready Time : 45 min

Servings

4

Ingredients

  • 2 cups frozen black-eyed peas
  • 3/4 cup Water
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 red pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 6 oz. butternut squash, cut in 1/2-inch dice (about 1 cup diced)
  • 1/2 cup chopped California walnuts
  • 1/4 cup sherry vinegar or wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 16 leaves iceberg lettuce or butter lettuce

Directions

1 In a medium saucepan, combine the black-eyed peas and water.
2 Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce the heat to low and simmer, covered, for about 30 minutes, until the peas are tender but not mushy.
3 Discard any liquid remaining in the pan and transfer the peas to a large bowl.
4 Coat a large nonstick skillet with nonstick cooking spray and place over medium-high heat. Add the onion, pepper and squash and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes.
5  Turn the heat to low, cover the pan and continue cooking until the squash is just tender, 5-7 minutes more. Sitr in the walnuts.
6 Add the walnut mixture to the peas along with the vinegar and parsley.
7 Stir and toss to combine, then season with salt and pepper to taste. Let cool slightly.
8 Spoon about 1/4 cup of the pea and walnut mixture into each lettuce leaf. Fold the leaves in half and eat them “taco-style.” Serves 4.

  1. What do you think of the idea of serving this as a side dish and not in a taco?
