Black Eyed Pea & Collard Stew

I know it's been a long time since I have done a blog post but I have been extremely busy. So I thought that it would be a great idea to share a recipe post from my newest ebook Secretly Vegan.

The book features 20 super delicious plant based recipes that no one will know are vegan. Most of the recipes included are GLUTEN FREE and they are all easy to prepare.You can checkout some of the book images and recipes here.

So now on to the recipe. The recipe I decided to feature is Black Eye Pea & Collard Stew. It is an absolutely delicious, flavorful and comforting dish. It's perfect for the holidays and it is super easy to prepare.
