We start every New Year with a skillet of cornbread, a vat of collard greens and a jeroboam of Hoppin’ John - all foods originally from the Low Country of the US and symbolic of good fortune, abundance, and luck.
Sprouted black-eyed peas are rich in fiber, protein and magnesium, making them a terrific protein alternative for vegans and vegetarians or people mindful of their meat consumption.
They taste of fragrant fresh peas. Add them as they are to salads or cook ‘em up in your own Hoppin’ John. It’s always a good time to enjoy black-eyed peas.
