Spicy Black-Eyed Pea Curry with Swiss Chard and Roasted Eggplant
Black-eyed peas have long been one of my favorite legumes, adding a welcome earthiness to dishes comprised of tangy, zesty or spicy flavors that make them a wonderful base in curries . In this nourishing curry, earthiness takes the main stage with roasted e...
