Wash produce before use


Toast the flatbreads

Heat the oven to 400°F. 

On a sheet pan, place the flatbreads side by side and brush the tops lightly with oil. Bake until starting to crisp, 5 to 6 minutes. Remove from the oven; keep the oven set at 400°F. Meanwhile, start preparing the cucumber-onion topping. 


Make the cucumber-onion topping

  • Peel the cucumber, if desired; cut the cucumber into enough ¼-inch pieces to measure 1½ cups [3 cups].
  • Peel and coarsely chop enough onion to measure ¾ cup [1½ cups]. Set aside ½ cup [1 cup] onion for the black-eyed peas.

In a medium bowl, stir together the cucumber, ¼ cup [½ cup] onion, and 1 to 2 teaspoons oil; season to taste with salt and pepper. 


Prep and cook the black-eyed peas

  • Rinse the black-eyed peas.
  • Coarsely chop the spinach. 

In a medium sauce pot over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the remaining chopped onion, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the black-eyed peas and ¾ cup [1¼ cups] water and bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the black-eyed peas are heated through and the liquid has thickened, 4 to 6 minutes. 

Working in batches if needed, stir in the spinach and cook until just wilted, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the heat, stir in the lemon juice, and season to taste with salt and pepper. While the black-eyed peas are cooking, finish the flatbreads.


Assemble and bake the flatbreads

  • In a small bowl, stir together the creamy feta spread and 1 to 2 tablespoons oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper. 

Carefully spread the creamy feta spread over the toasted flatbreads, leaving a ½-inch border around the edges. Return to the oven and bake until the spread is heated through, 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board and top with the cucumber-onion mixture and as much Aleppo chile as you like. Cut into squares.


Transfer the flatbreads to individual plates and serve the black-eyed peas on the side.
