Black Eyed Peas & Veggie Medley



Prep time


Cooking time




  • 1/2 pkg. of 14 oz. extra firm tofu

  • 2 Tbsp. oil

  • 1/4 onion, chopped

  • 1 1/2 cups rice, cooked (a microwavable bag of rice works fine)

  • 1 can black-eyed peas

  • 2 cups collard greens, chopped (frozen works fine)

  • 1 pkg. smoked tofu, cubed

  • 1 tsp. salt

  • Hot sauce, to taste

  • Cooking spray, for tofu


  • Use a tofu press to drain the tofu. Alternatively, wrap in a kitchen towel and place between two plates with a heavy book on top for 30 minutes, replace the towel with a fresh one, and repeat.
  • Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  • Cut the tofu into 1-inch cubes and arrange in a single layer on a large parchment-lined baking sheet. Lightly spray with cooking oil. Bake for 20 minutes, flip, then continue baking until golden brown and crisp, about 20 more minutes.
  • Add the oil to a pan over medium heat. Add the onion and stir for 1 minute.
  • Add the rice and black-eyed peas. Sauté for 3 minutes, stirring often.
  • Add the collard greens and salt and stir for a few minutes, until cooked through. Top with baked tofu.
  • Serve with hot sauce and enjoy!
