Eating black eyes peas on New Year’s Day for good luck and prosperity for the coming year is a long-held tradition in the South. We at Kilimanjaro  Foods thought we’d put our own spin on this custom by creating our version of this dish: Palava Rice and Blackeyed Peas

1 1/3 cups of long grain rice
2 cups of water
1 15 ounce can Blackeyed Peas

Combine rice,water, and KFI Palava in a sauce pan and bring to a boil. Cover reduce heat and simmer for 12 minuets. Add blackeyed peas and simmer for 3 minuets or till rice is tender.

We’re sure you will love this tasty dish and we wish you a Happy and Prosperous New Year!
