Pink Eyed Peas

2 teaspoons olive oil
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 garlic cloves, minced
3 cups fresh pink-eyed peas (black eye peas are fine, too!)
3 cups water
3 bacon slices
salt and black pepper to taste

Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic; sauté 2 minutes. Add peas, water, and bacon; bring to a boil. Add salt and pepper. Reduce heat; simmer, partially covered, 30 minutes or until tender.

I used cooked and crumbled bacon but it doesn’t have to be precooked!
