This is similar to Hoppin' John, a must for a Southern New Year's Day in the U.S. (brings good luck), delicious and healthful all year long. This version doesn't include ham or sausage like most traditional versions. It's vegetarian, but I usually make it with chicken broth. Traditionally the greens would be collard greens or mustard greens and served on the side, but my kids eat more greens when they are mixed in.
Rinse your beans before you cook them (always!) but these don't need to pre-soak. They usually cook in a little over an hour.Submitted by: PAPRIKAPINK
