This is one of my favorite recipes, as it holds a special place in my heart. My love for cooking was fostered in the kitchen of my Grandmother Doris. Growing up, peas (preferably black-eyed peas) and collards were mainstays in her kitchen. These ingredients were always cooked in separate pots. As an ode to her I wanted to bring them together into one pot. In place of collards I used Lacinato kale. My Grandmother Doris has not tried this rendition yet, but I am sure she would be proud.
