As Tim Carman shared in his Immigrant’s Table column this month on hoppin’ John, black-eyed peas have a tradition of being thought of as lucky. A little bit of luck — and a lot of fiber — would be a nice thing to ring in the new year with, so here are some ideas from our Recipe Finder:
• Black-Eyed Pea and Pineapple Salad. You can make this dish up to three days in advance.
• Black-Eyed Pea Hummus. A spin on the Mediterranean staple is enlivened with pimentos and caramelized onions.
• Good Luck Minestrone: You’ll be doubly lucky with the addition of collards to this hearty soup.
• Smokin' Hoppin' John. In case you can’t get enough of the Southern classic.
