Ingredients

1 1/2 cup  Peas, black eyed, mature
1 tsp  vegetable oil
1 each  medium onions
28 oz  vegetable broth
1 each  Sauce, hot, serving
1 tsp  salt
1 pinch  black pepper
2 1/2 cup  cooked white rice
4 each  fresh tomatoes
1 1/2 cup  fresh chopped green onion
3 tbsp  chopped parsley
1 cup  roasted lean ham, diced
Directions
  1. Clean and rinse the peas. Cover with three cups water and let stand overnight. Drain and rinse the peas; discard the soaking water.
  2. Heat the oil in a medium-size saucepan over medium heat; add the onion and cook 5 to 7 minutes, or until onion is translucent. Add the peas and the broth; bring to a boil.
  3. Lower heat and simmer 20 minutes or until the peas are tender and a small amount of cooking liquid remains. If the liquid is absorbed too quickly, add additional broth, 1/4 cup at a time. Stir in the hot sauce, salt and pepper. Cover and simmer 15 minutes.
  4. Divide cooked rice evenly among 8 bowls and top with the peas. Garnish with tomatoes, onion, parsley, and ham.
