Crispy and spicy Roasted Black-Eyed Peas are just the party food to serve for New Year’s to bring good luck in the new year. They also make a wonderful light and healthy snack which we all need plenty of after the holidays.
This recipe is fabulously easy. Drain and rinse 2 cans of black-eyed peas. Spread them out on some paper towels to dry them out a bit. Then place them on a lightly greased baking sheet and drizzle them with oil and sprinkle Cajun seasoning and paprika on them.
I love to use Tony Chachere’s More Spice Seasoning. It’s something my roommates in college introduced my to. They were from New Iberia, Louisiana and put Tony Chachere’s on just about everything. Not only does it have lots of spice, but plenty of flavor from garlic powder and chili powder.
It is salty though so you’ll have to watch how much you put on your food. And if you use a seasoning that is less salty for these Roasted Black-Eyed Peas, you may want to add some salt.
If you don’t have much luck getting the black-eyed peas to dry out, you either haven’t cooked them long enough or you may need to use a different brand of black-eyed peas. I had good success with Hanover Black-Eyed Peas.
