Roasted Black Eyed Peas

30 Dec

This recipe was inspired by the fried black eyed peas from Relish in Historic Roswell, GA that Alton Brown showcased on The Best Thing I Ever Ate. I came across a recipe for roasted chick peas on Tasty Kitchen’s website (by mcmom) and this is the brainchild of both of these things. They are a great snack, perfect for New Years day or anytime!

Time: 5 min prep, 30 min cook         Serves: 4+


  • 2 15oz cans Black Eyed peas
  • 1/2 tsp garlic salt
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • dash cayenne pepper
  • dash white pepper
  • 1 tbsp olive oil

How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 425F.
  • Rinse and drain peas and dry well on paper towels. Place peas on a lightly greased baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and shake. Return to oven for another 10 minutes. Meanwhile, combine seasonings in a small bowl. Remove peas from oven and drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with spices, and shake – tossing to coat. Return to oven for another 10 minutes, or until peas are browned and very crunchy.
