tablespoons unrefined coconut oil
large yellow onion, finely chopped
01In a large Dutch oven over medium, heat the coconut oil until shimmering. Add the onion, 2 teaspoons salt and ½ teaspoon pepper, then cook, stirring, until light golden brown and softened, 7 to 10 minutes. Stir in the garlic and chilies, then cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the black-eyed peas, bay leaves and 5 cups water. Bring to a simmer over medium-high, then reduce to medium and cook, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the flavors meld, about 15 minutes.
