A simple and spicy sauté of black-eyed peas and greens is stuffed into biscuit dough to make these delicious and portable Black-eyed peas and greens stuffed buns!
Happy almost 2019, y’all! I am hoping your Christmas was wonderful!
As we head to 2019, here in Georgia, store shelves are currently stocked to the brim with black eyed peas and greens.
As Southern tradition emphasis feasting on black eyed peas and greens for good luck and prosperity in the New Year, I have a new way to enjoy this good luck duo in these easy Black Eyed Peas and Greens Stuffed Buns!
My daughter and I enjoyed so many versions of stuffed buns this year. I made Vegetarian Lentil Buns at home and I hope to share them on here in 2019. I also made these Spiced Chicken Stuffed Buns as well as these Curried Chicken Stuffed Buns and shared these on here.
So, for New Year, I figured I’d stick with the whole stuffed buns theme and make a spicy sauté of black eyed peas and greens stuffed buns.
For these stuffed buns, I used store bought biscuit dough as the “bun” to keep prep super easy. But, if you would rather make the bun part from scratch, you can use the homemade whole wheat dough I used for the Spiced Chicken and Curried Chicken Stuffed Buns.
The black eyed peas and greens filling is a tasty blend of sautéed onions, ginger and garlic, along with coriander, cumin, chili powder, tomato paste and cilantro.
Instead of regular collard greens, I went with frozen spinach but you could sub in the same quantity of frozen collards as well.
This sauté was so tasty that we ended up eating what was leftover after making the stuffed buns, with some of this turmeric quinoa!
If you are looking for a twist on traditional black eyed peas and greens, I hope you give these black eyed peas and greens, or this black eyed peas and greens curry, or these black eyed peas and greens croquettes, a try.
Thank you for stopping by, I am hoping God showers down health, happiness and prosperity on you and yours in 2019! Until next time, toodles y’all!
