I make Hoppin John with Black Eyed Peas every New Year's Day. I used to make it with Smoked Ham Hocks, but as one of my sons became a vegetarian 5 years ago... I now make a Vegetarian Version which follows this recipe closely, but instead of Meat I use a couple teaspoons of Liquid Smoke, Olive Oil, and smoked veggie bacon. Only add 1 cup of rice during the last 1/2 hour and pre-soak the black eyed peas. We use much more liquid (vegetable broth is good) and add Tabasco Sauce to taste after taking it off the flame. Serve with my cornbread and collard greens.
