4 cups fresh
1 teaspoon salt
1 chili pepper, crushed, or ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
Soak fresh peas (used
canned peas if you cannot find fresh) in cold water for about
five minutes to soften. Using both hands, rub and gently squeeze
the peas as they continue to soak. This process will gradually
loosen the skins, which will float to the top. Skim and discard
Drain and rinse the peas, add salt and hot pepper and cover with clean water. Boil until tender. Serve, along with the cooking water over oshifima or another stiff porridge.
If you like, you can cook greens, such as spinach and perhaps serve some sliced bananas with peanuts to have a complete meal.
