Sylvia Woods is perhaps New York's most famous soul food chef. In fact, she's been crowned the "queen of soul food," a cuisine that is not generally known for being low calorie.

The Zagat New York City restaurant survey said that the food at Wood's Harlem restaurant is tasty and comforting, but warned: "Don't tell your doctor what you ate."

That's all changed. Woods has joined forces with Splenda and concocted some delicious, yet light treats.

*Canned black-eyed peas and any brand hot sauce may be substituted for Sylvia's canned black-eyed peas and Sylvia's Hot Sauce. For that special flavor, look for Sylvia's canned black-eyed peas and Sylvia's Hot Sauce in your local market or order online.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups Sylvia's canned black-eyed peas, drained*
  • 3/4 cup green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 cup celery, chopped
  • 1/2 cup red onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup Splenda No Calorie Sweetener (granular)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
