Braised Greens for Hoppin' John
Hoppin' John is a dish made with black-eyed peas, smoked meat and rice. (See the recipe here) As the peas are cooking the liquid becomes rich and thick. Save a little to season your greens.
In a heavy pot, heat the oil and sauté the onion until translucent. Add the greens and cook until they are starting to wilt. Add the cooking liquid and cook until they are nice and tender but still bright green. Season with salt and pepper and serve with a splash of vinegar.
