5 cups cooked black-eyed peas
1 red onion chopped
1 cinnamon stick
1 teaspoon mustard powder
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon turmeric
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 cup strained tomatoes ( We use Bionaturae Organic)
1 cup water
1 cup coconut milk (For coconut milk, we mix one 7 ounce package of Let’s Do Organic Creamed Coconut in 3 cups water)
salt and pepper to taste

In a large sauce pan mix all the ingredients together. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally until the liquid reduces down to make a thick stew. Remove the cinnamon stick. Serve with steamed collard greens and onions and a whole grain like rice, millet or wheat berries.
