When I want a crunchy, salty snack, these garlic roasted black-eyed peas satisfy my cravings.
They are super easy to make, so it doesn’t take much effort to create this non-junky snack.
I love that they don’t have artificial ingredients like store bought snacks often do.
This legume is also known as a cowpea, depending upon where you live. It grows well in arid regions of the US and around the world.
As you may have guessed, it is a good source of fiber and protein. You will also get a good amount of iron, potassium and magnesium in each serving.
That sounds a lot better than the nutrition facts you’ll see on a bag of BBQ chips, doesn’t it?
