Ingredients

1/2 cup dried black-eyed peas

Salt

1/2 cup bulgur wheat

1 large head endive

1 medium onion, chopped

Olive oil

Freshly ground black pepper

1/2 lemon

Directions

  1. In a saucepan, cook the black-eyed peas in 2 cups of water with some salt. Cook until almost soft, about 1 1/2 hours. Drain the water from the beans. 
  2. Boil the bulgur wheat as you would rice, with 1 cup of water, simmering until the water has been absorbed. 
  3. Meanwhile, steam the endive in water with 1 teaspoon salt. After steaming, drain the water from the endive and squeeze it until all the water is gone. 
  4. In a bowl, add the beans, bulgur wheat and endive and mix together. Set aside. 
  5. In a saute pan, cook the onions in some oil for a few minutes until they brown. Add the endive, peas and bulgur wheat to the pan and cook briefly, for only 3 to 5 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste. Squeeze half a lemon over the salad to serve.
