Instructions

2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use

1

Make the crunchy salad

  • Cut the tomatoes in half.
  • Juice half the lemon; cut half into wedges for garnish. [Juice 1 lemon; cut 1 lemon into wedges.]
  • Strip the parsley leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves.
In a medium bowl, toss together the cruciferous medley, tomatoes, parsley, 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] lemon juice, and 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

2

Cook the black-eyed peas

  • Rinse the black-eyed peas.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] oil until hot but not smoking. Add the black-eyed peas and cook, stirring once or twice, until starting to crisp, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper. Meanwhile, start warming the pita breads.

3

Toast and assemble the pitas

On the stovetop directly over a flame, or in a dry medium frying pan over medium heat, warm the pita breads, turning once, until lightly toasted, about 30 seconds per side. Alternatively, toast them in a toaster oven. Cut in half.
Spread the red pepper baba ganoush inside each pita half and fill with the black-eyed peas and as much crunchy salad as you like.

Serve

Transfer the pitas to individual plates and serve the lemon wedges and any remaining salad on the side.
