Black-eyed Pea Burritos

What you need: 

1 (14 ounce) can black-eyed peas, rinsed and drained or 1/2 cup dried, fully cooked
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 red onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 zucchini, chopped
1 green or red pepper, diced
1 tomato, diced
1 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon cayenne
1 teaspoon dried oregano
2 teaspoons sea salt, divided
6 tortillas

What you do: 

1. If you are using dried peas, they must be fully cooked before you begin. Black-eyed peas can be soaked overnight to make them more easily digestible, but this is not necessary. Drain the peas, and then add enough water to cover them by 2 inches. Gently boil them for 1 hour with no salt. You can add a bit of kombu (seaweed) to the cooking water while they boil for improved digestibility.
2. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. If you are using canned, look for a can that does not have any salt listed in the ingredients. Some varieties are actually cooked with kombu, which is ideal. Heat a large pan to medium, add olive oil and saute onion until softened. Add garlic, and saute briefly.
3. Next, add the zucchini to the pan and saute until soft. The pepper goes in next, then the tomato very briefly. As soon as the tomato is warmed, add the spices and 1 teaspoon of the salt. Stir the drained peas into the vegetables, and add the other teaspoon of salt. Stir to combine.
4. Spoon the mix into the middle of each tortilla, fold in both ends and roll. Place the rolls in a baking dish and put in the oven for 15-20 minutes.

SO HOW'D IT GO?

This was very tasty and filling.  I tried using frozen black eye peas and they were so flavorless they tried to ruin the meal, but the other flavors made up for it.  I skipped the baking part... What exactly is the benefit of baking it?  Does the burrito stay together better?

The peas would be much better if they marinated for a bit with the other flavors :) And the baking is just to make it nice and warm, and soften the wrap. Sometimes that helps it stay together because the wrap doesn't crack as much, but it's all going in the same place ;)

I have made this recipe three times now. The first time I baked it and the last two I just wrapped the burrito and ate it. My only change was using gluten free tortillas.

I just watched your video because I had no idea how to make a burrito!  Your video was so helpful and the mixture of vegetables and beans looks terrific.  I'm looking forward to making these!
