New Year’s Day tradition calls for eating black-eyed peas in a dish called Hoppin’ John to ensure good luck in the coming year. Black-eyed peas, however, are a satisfying comfort food all winter long. They are members of the legume family and actually are beans, not peas. They’re a good source of potassium, iron and fiber.



Heat oil or butter in skillet over medium heat. Add onions and garlic and sauté until onions are soft and translucent, about 5 minutes. Add red peppers and carrots and sauté a few minutes more. Add corn, tomatoes, thyme, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes. Stir gently until heated through.

Stir in cooked peas and heat. Taste and adjust seasonings. Add green onions just before serving.

Slow cooker version

We made a version of this recipe with our slow cooker. We soaked the black-eyed peas overnight. Sauteed the onions and some red pepper, and then added them with the rest of the ingredients to the slow cooker. Cooked for 6 hours on low. Served them with collards and skillet-baked corn bread. Yum!
