Paula Deen's Hoppin John

Submitted by: BUN3KIN

Introduction

Living in Mississippi I was on a quest to find a good Hoppin John recipe for New Years day. This one came highly recommended and once you taste it, you will see why!

About the only change I made was to use olive oil instead of butter, and use less of it.

Some people will say that Hoppin John isn't Hoppin John without "seasoning meat" so if you feel that way, toss some ham, sausage (turkey sausage for a healthier version), bacon or ham hocks in. Those would obviously make the dish no longer vegetarian. :o)

The nutritional information does not include the House Seasoning.

Enjoy!

Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    1 tablespoon olive oil
    1 small onion, chopped
    1 small red bell pepper, chopped
    Garlic powder
    2 cups black-eye peas, cooked
    2 cups cooked rice
    House Seasoning, recipe follows
    8 sprigs fresh parsley, for garnish

Directions

Pour Olive oil into a large skillet. Over medium heat, cook onion, bell pepper, and garlic powder for 5 minutes. Add peas and rice and cook an additional 10 to 15 minutes. You want the onion and bell pepper to still have a crunch to them, so be careful not to overcook. Add House Seasoning, to taste. Garnish each serving with a sprig of parsley.

House Seasoning:
1 cup salt
1/4 cup black pepper
1/4 cup garlic powder

Mix ingredients together and store in an airtight container for up to 6 months.

Number of Servings: 8
