Vegetarian Hoppin' John

The Southern tradition of eating black eyed peas on New Year’s day goes all the way back to the Civil War, when the folks in Vicksburg discovered a store of black eyed peas that saved the town from starvation. A bowl of Hoppin’ John has since become a New Year’s tradition.

Black eyed peas are more than a good luck food. They’re loaded with folic acid, vitamins, and fiber and are a great vegetarian source of protein. Here are 5 recipes featuring this nutritional superstar that are sure to bring you some luck in 2011!
