Legume of the month: Black-eyed peas
In Southern states, people often eat black-eyed peas and collard greens on New Year’s Day, a tradition believed to bring wealth and good fortune in the coming year. The classic recipe for this dish, called Hoppin’ John, often includes some form of pork. But the Half-cup Habit website has a vegetarian version; see https://pulses.org/nap/recipe/hoppin-john.
