  1. 8-10 Servings
  2. Make a vegetarian "fatback" by stirring together the tamari, mustard, Pick-a-Peppa, garlic, and toasted sesame oil to make a marinade. Cut the tofu into chunks, and toss gently with the marinade. The longer this soaks, the better it is, but if you do not have much time, about an hour should do it.
  3. Put the black-eyed peas in a pot with sufficient water to cover them, bring to a boil, and add in the onion, ketchup, and savory. Turn down the heat and let simmer for about 45 min. When the peas are half done, add in the tofu and the rest of the marinade, the salt and pepper. Continue simmering and stir gently till the peas are soft. Serve this with hushpuppies or possibly cornbread, collard greens, and boiled potatoes for good luck on New Year's Day.
  4. NOTES : I was brought up to believe which a pot of beans was simply not edible if it didn't have some type of meat cooked with it. I fiddled around till I came up with something which brings out the taste of the beans just like I remember. If you cannot find Pick-a-Peppa sauce in your store, you may substitute vegetarian Worcestershire, A-1 sauce, White Tiger Sauce, or possibly Perkin's Steak Sauce, but Pick-a-Peppa works best. Look for parrots on the label.
