Serves: 4 to 6

Here's a vegetarian adaptation of a traditional dish of the deep South. Serve it with fresh cornbread and tangy cole slaw for a satisfying, down-home meal.

* 1 tablespoon light olive oil
* 1 cup chopped onions
* 2 cloves garlic, minced
* 2 cups chopped ripe, juicy tomatoes plus 1/4 cup water, or 16-ounce can diced tomatoes, undrained
* 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
* 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
* 3 cups cooked brown rice (about 1 cup raw)
* 16-ouncec can black-eyed peas,drained and rinsed, or 2 cups cooked (about 2/3 cup raw)
* Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Heat the oil in a very large skillet or a stir-fry pan. Sauté the onions over medium heat until translucent. Add the garlic and continue to sauté until the onions are golden. Stir in the tomatoes, basil, and thyme; cook until the tomatoes have softened a bit, about 5 minutes.

Add the rice and black-eyed peas, and season to taste with salt and lots of pepper. Stir well, then simmer, covered, over low heat for 15 minutes. If the mixture seems dry, add a bit of water or cooking liquid from the peas. Serve at once.
