 Black-Eye Peas and Rice (T)
 1 onion
 water/broth for saute
 1 15oz can peeled tomatoes, drained 
   or equivalent amount of fresh tomatoes (~1.5 cups)
 1 15oz can Black Eye Peas, drained
 2 cups cooked white rice 
   (I used a mixture of white/brown basmati)
 Salt, pepper, garlic powder for seasoning
 Chop the onion and saute it in a good size frying pan
 with the broth.  If you are using fresh tomatoes, add
 them and cook until they are soft.  Stir in the remaining 
 ingredients and heat through. 
 Makes about 3-4 servings, as a main course casserole 
    Don't drain the tomatoes and black-eyes completely.  You need
    a little “juice” to make it a nice mushy (comforting) casserole.
    I really liked it with a generous amount of pepper.
    This recipe was from a TV program here in Raleigh NC called
    “Southern Sportsman”.  I just took out the oil and bacon.
