Prepare the Salad
Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
Put the black-eyes peas in a small pot and generously cover with water. Boil on high for 30–40 minutes or until soft but not mushy. Rinse and drain.
Prepare a baking sheet with Gefen Easy Baking Parchment Paper and add leek, gourd and carrot. Drizzle with four tablespoons olive oil and a half teaspoon salt. Mix well and put in the oven for 35 minutes or until golden.
In a jar add remaining olive oil, balsamic vinegar, honey and salt and mix well. In a large bowl add the lettuce, beet, pomegranate, dates and apple slices. Add leek, gourd, carrots, and black-eyed peas. Mix with dressing right before serve. Serve warm or room temperature.
Be sure that the leek, gourd and carrots are all chopped to the same size so they cook evenly and don't burn.
Replies:I would use butternut squash. It's the most hearty of the gourds and acts a lot like a sweet potato.
