This is super easy black eyed pea salad recipe that you can rustle up in about 15 minutes. Black eyed peas or lobia are very popular beans in India and I regularly make lobia or black eyed pea curry that is super flavourful. These beans are bursting with protein and vital nutrients. If you are a vegetarian or vegan, this is the perfect food for you especially since it is high in plant protein.
