This was so simple and yet delicious! I did make a few small tweaks. I cut this in half for just myself and my husband. I used black eyed peas I had made (not ones from a can) - one can is about 1 3/4C. I skipped the cayenne, used baby spinach, and added seasoned salt and about 1/4lb ground turkey. Because I added in the ground turkey, I also added in a bit more chicken broth as it cooked near the end (maybe about 1/2 to 1 tbsp). I don't normally add in extra salt but the peas were cooked with no salt and the chicken broth was low sodium. The seasoned salt was PERFECT. I think I may have added around 1/8 tsp or a little less (remembering that I cut this recipe in half). I do think the thyme was a tad overpowering, but that is just my personal taste. Next time I'll back off just a bit on the thyme. Overall we loved this and we'll be making it again.
I had this recipe saved for a while, sorry I didn't make it sooner! I used rice that had been cooked in chicken broth, so while not vegetarian it was a delicious meatless meal that I'll be making again very soon. The other change I made was to use drained and rinsed canned corn instead of frozen. Instead of the cayenne, I added hot sauce plus seasoned it with Creole Seasoning to give it a little extra kick.
This is a great, easy to make meal that's different from the ordinary. Use the cayenne or Tabasco to give it some kick.
