2 garlic cloves, whole

2 cups dry black-eyed peas, rinsed

½ small can tomato paste

½ can diced tomatoes

3 cups of vegetable broth, gluten free

Salt and black pepper to taste


  1. Turn Instant Pot to saute setting, add olive oil. Once hot, add onions and garlic. Stir and cook until soft and golden brown.
  2. Add blacked peas, stir, and then add diced tomatoes, tomato paste, vegetable broth, salt, and pepper.
  3. Place lid on instant pot and cook on high pressure for 15 minutes.


Serve the stew with rice and a side salad.

If you are using a regular pot instead of an Instant Pot, you can soak the black-eyed peas in water for 2 hours, drain and rinse and then prepare the recipe in a conventional pot on the stove top and cook for 1.5 hours or until black-eyed peas become fork tender.
