Rainbow Greens Salad with Black Eyed Peas nutrition


  1. Start by soaking 1 cup of peas in a pot filled with water. Let them soak for at least 6 hours or overnight.
  2. After soaking, rinse the peas and refill the pot with water. Add a dash of salt and simmer the peas for about 2 hours on medium heat.
  3. While the peas are simmering, rinse your chopped kale and cabbage.
  4. In a medium pan, heat 1 tbsp of oil, then add shallots, garlic, and cabbage. Sauté for 1-2 min over medium heat.
  5. Next, add in the kale, another tablespoon of oil, and a pinch of sea salt. Cover and let it cook for 3 to 4 min on medium heat until the greens wilt.
  6. Remove the pan from heat and transfer all the cooked ingredients into a large bowl.
  7. To this bowl, add shredded carrots, cooked quinoa (if using), cooked black-eyed peas, and a splash of lemon juice. Mix everything well.
  8. Season with more salt/pepper if desired. Enjoy!
