Happy New Year, Gentle Reader. It’s a new dawn. It’s a new day. And it’s time for a black-eyed pea recipe. One of my favorites, with North African inspired flavors. Serving black-eyed peas and beans at the start of a freshly birthed year is serious good mojo in some circles.
At least that’s what they tell me.
Why eating a plate of legumes on New Year’s Day brings luck I’ve no idea, but someone somewhere decided these humble little nuggets of vegan protein were a good and fortunate culinary choice. So why not?
