Many believe that eating black-eyed peas on New Year’s Day will bring prosperity in the new year. We believe that, no matter when you eat them, they're just simply delicious when cooked with the Anova Sous Vide Precision Cooker.

Ingredients for 8

  • 1 cup dried black-eyed peas, soaked overnight in cold, salted water

  • 1 cup water

  • 1 cup extra virgin olive oil

  • 1 carrot, peeled and cut into 1-inch dice

  • 1 stalk celery, cut into 1-inch dice

  • 1 shallot, quartered

  • 2 slices bacon, cut into 1-inch dice

  • 2 bay leaves

  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper


  • Step 1

    Set the Anova Sous Vide Precision Cooker to 190°F (87°C).

  • Step 2

    Drain and rinse the beans. Transfer to a large zipper lock bag and add the water, oil, carrot, celery, shallot, bacon, and bay leaves. Season with salt and pepper. Seal the bag using the water immersion technique and place in the water bath. Set the timer for 3 hours.

    • Finishing Steps

    • Step 1

      When the timer goes off, remove the bag from the water bath. Taste the beans; if they are still firm, return them to the water bath for 1 more hour. If they are tender, transfer to a serving bowl. Remove the bay leaves. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve.
