Favorite New Year’s Day Recipe

I love easy recipes.  One of my absolute favorite easy recipe is this Black-eyed Peas and Rice dish that I make for New Year’s Day.

I don’t just make this recipe on New Year’s Day, I make it all year-long.  It is a very hardy dish and goes a long way when you want to feed a house full.

During the winter and fall months I make this dish for Meatless Mondays and serve it with a huge green salad with fresh from the oven bread sticks.

All Things Good and Wise, Black Eyed Peas and Rice

My family loves it, even my hubby who dislikes beans loves this dish.  I keep telling him that black-eyed peas are not legumes, they are from the shelled peas family.  Either way he is not a huge fan of tiny things that squish in your mouth.  But he likes this dish. 🙂 In fact I hated Black Eyed Peas until I ate them cooked this way. Not sure where I found this recipe but I adapted it from one my friend Sandee use to make.
