 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      pound         dried black-eyed peas
    1      large         onion, peeled and finely chopped
    2      tablespoons   oil
    1      teaspoon      garlic salt
    1      teaspoon      oregano
    5      cups          chicken stock
    8      cups          hot cooked rice
 
 Soak peas overnight with water to cover by 2 inches.  Drain peas and set
 aside.  In large Dutch oven, saute onion in oil until transparent; add peas,
 seasonings and chicken stock.  Cover and cook slowly until peas are tender,
 about 30-40 minutes.  If made ahead, cover and reheat.  For each serving,
 serve 1/2 cup of peas over 1/2 cup rice.
