Cajun Black-Eyed Peas



In a heavy saucepan or skillet, saute the onions and garlic in the oil on medium heat. Chop the celery and bell peppers, and add them to the pan. Continue to saute for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the thyme, basil, oregano, black pepper, cayenne and salt. Cover and cook for 5 minutes or until the onions are golden, stirring once or twice. Add the tomatoes, honey and mustard and simmer for 5 more minutes. Add the beans, cover and stir occasionally until thoroughly heated. Canned beans or home cooked beans will be hot in less than 10 minutes, but frozen beans need to simmer for 15 to 20 minutes. Top with scallions, soy sour cream or grated soy cheese if you like, and serve.
