1 cup dried black-eyed peas
2 t. dried oregano
1-2 T. minced garlic (matter of taste here, if you like garlic, go for 2)
1 t. black pepper
¼ cup chopped onion
2 tsp salt (do not add until near the end or beans get weird)
1 pound frozen haricot verts (skinny green beans) or one package fresh whole green beans in microwavable bag.
1 red bell pepper, already grilled or oven roasted, sliced into strips
