If you can't find field peas, lima beans will work just as well in this side dish.


3cups shelled field peas (such as lady peas or black-eyed peas) or lima beans
4slices slices bacon
2 shallots, chopped
3 green onions, chopped
15 cherry tomatoes, halved
1/2cup shredded basil
1/2cup crumbled feta cheese
1/4teaspoon salt
Freshly ground black pepper


  1. Combine peas and water to cover by 1 inch. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 10 minutes or until peas are tender but not mushy. Drain and rinse.
  2. Cook bacon in a large skillet; drain, reserving 1 tablespoon drippings. Add shallots and green onions to drippings; sauté 5 minutes. Combine shallot mixture, peas, tomatoes, basil, feta, salt and pepper; toss gently.
