  • 1 pound dried black-eyed peas
  • 2 quarts water
  • 1/2 to 1 tsp. Liquid Smoke
  • 1/2 cup green bell pepper chopped
  • 1/2 cup onion chopped
  • 1/2 cup green onion chopped
  • 1/2 cup celery chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper, or to taste (this full amount was delicious and not overwhelming!)


Wash peas and soak overnight in cold water. Drain peas. Place all ingredients in large pot, add 2 quarts water. Cook at least 2 hours or until peas are tender. Additional water may be needed.

This is delicious – no ham or sugar needed as I have seen in other recipes. Serve with cornbread for a traditional New Year’s meal to help ensure good luck for the coming year.

Many thanks to our good friends Kris and Dave Dudley for sharing this recipe with us on December 31, 2006!


In my book, I have included the names of several dozen cookbooks which feature recipes that are compatible with (or that can be modified to fit) the ultra-healthy diet I follow, including some resources which are free.

I am also collecting recipes to include in a future edition of my book as well as to be featured on "Menus and recipes".   I have asked readers to send me any recipes that they have found to be great-tasting and easy to prepare, and that emphasize the nutritional guidelines which are outlined in my book.  I will also consider taking people's favorite "normal" recipes and posting versions which are modified for maximal cancer prevention.

If you have a recipe you wish to submit for possible inclusion in either my book or on this web page, please send it to me.  If the recipe is from a cookbook or other printed source, please include the name, author, and publisher of the source so that I can ask for permission to reprint the recipe.  If it is a recipe you created, or a family favorite, please indicate that, also.
