Hottie Black-Eyed Peas & Greens

Ingredients:
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 small onion, diced small
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 bunch kale or collards, coarse stems removed, shredded (about 1/2 pound)
1/4 cup water
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 (15-ounce) cans black-eyed peas, drained and rinsed
1 cup tomato sauce
1/2 cup vegetable broth
1 tablespoon hot sauce
1/4 teaspoon liquid smoke (optional; a smidge of smoked paprika would be great, too)

Preheat a 4-quart pot over medium heat. Saute the onion in the oil until translucent, about 5 minutes. Use a little nonstick cooking spray if needed. Add the garlic and saute for a minute more. Add the greens, 1/4 cup water, and the salt. Cover the pot and cook down the greens for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the black-eyed peas, tomato sauce, and broth, and mix thoroughly. Cover the pot and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Add the hot sauce and liquid smoke, then use a potato masher to mash some of the beans, about one-quarter of them, to thicken the sauce. Cook for about 5 more minutes, uncovered. Taste for salt and seasoning. You may want to add more hot sauce.

I have a question, I plan on making this tonight but was wondering, Did the beans need to be cooked then put into the recipe, or do you just put them in dry?

sorry for delay! i use canned beans...dried beans take foreverrrr to soak/cook- this recipe is great if you just take a can of black eyed peas, rinse them, and cook. super fast! :)
