Few summer crops are more reliable here than Cow Peas (Vigna unguiculata) and there are MANY varieties, like my beloved 'Iron Clay'. I enjoy the young, tender, protein-rich leaves raw in salads, plus added to stir fry and soups. This summer I will finally try some of the traditional African recipes for Cow Pea leaves. To me, the pods are a bonus after months of bountiful leaves.
