Black-eyed peas are a staple in southern cuisine in the United States.  They form the basis for the rice-and-beans dish Hoppin’ John, which is thought to bring luck and prosperity when eaten on the New Year.  Not only are black beans a great way to start 2011, they’re healthy and filling.  Beans have a lot of fiber and protein, which makes for a hearty vegetarian meal.  My recipe for Black-Eyed Peas would be delicious dish to start the New Year off with a healthy start.
