Happy Healthy New Year Eating: Black-eyed Pea Succotash

Black-eyed peas are known by many cultures as “Lucky New Year food.” Since the peas swell once they cook, it is said they bring prosperity.

Traditionally, my mother would make them with smoked pork and serve them over rice with corn bread and fried chicken. Gone are those days…I’m starting a new healthier tradition at my household, “Black-eyed pea Succotash.” To complete the meal, I served it with sautéed collard greens and garlic, and baked True Atlantic Cod with fresh lemon juice.

Happy, Healthy Eating -- 2012!
