To begin the transition back to our regular lives and to usher in the coming year, we searched for a great-tasting, healthy recipe for New Year's Day and came up with a version of the already-pretty-healthy traditional dish - Hoppin' John. With Southern origins, it's now eaten all across the country and is said to bring good luck throughout the year.
This recipe - from Let's Move - is simple, meatless, big on flavor, and quite healthy. It has the traditional black-eyed peas and brown rice, collard greens, and smoked paprika in place of bacon or ham-hock. Enjoy.
Happy New Year
