Got 20 minutes? This delicious curried black eyed peas recipe is calling you. Use what you’ve got on-hand. Perfect for vegan meal prep!



  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 14oz can black eyed peas, drained & rinsed
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 1 zucchini, sliced
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halfed
  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon yellow curry powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon roasted garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 14oz can coconut milk
  • hot sauce, to taste


  1. Heat a large skillet with a little coconut oil.
  2. Add bell pepper, zucchini, onion, cherry tomatoes, curry powder, garlic powder and salt.
  3. After about 5 minutes, they’ll be softer but not all the way done. Tip: a fork should still meet some resistance when piercing the zucchini.
  4. Now add the black eyed peas.
  5. Stir to coat the beans in the curry powder-veggie-mix. Pour in coconut milk and simmer for about 5 minutes. Curry is done when peas are warmed through and zucchini is fork-tender.
  6. If you’re like me, add a couple dashes of hot sauce now!
  7. Serve with rice.
