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 oil over medium heat. Sauté onions until translucent. Add greens and cook until they are starting to wilt. Add 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.


Note: I like chard for its quick-cooking tendencies, but you may use any leafy green you love. Collards and kale will take about 5 to 8 minutes more cooking time.
