Black-eyed pea recipes for the New Year

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 peas may not guarantee luck for the new year, but at least you’ll be getting fiber. (James M. Thresher for The Washington Post)

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.

What are your favorite ways to eat black-eyed peas? Share in the comments below.
