Would probably have to give this 4 stars out of 5. Was very good, but not.... divine! Is also a very healthy recipe. I think I used dried black-eyed peas - soaked and cooked them earlier (try to avoid canned goods when it's not too 'out of the way' !!) I also doubled the recipe - it's great leftover (as are so may soups and stews). :)
