  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

  • 1 (15 ounce) can black-eyed peas, rinsed and drained

  • 1 cup finely chopped red onion

  • 1 ½ teaspoons chopped fresh thyme leaves

  • ½ teaspoon garlic salt

  • teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • 2 cups lightly packed fresh spinach leaves


  1. Heat a wok or 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil and rotate wok or skillet to coat the sides.
