Hoppin' John

Here is another rice dish- Hoppin' John! Hoppin John has many variations and no single place to give the origins from, but it is fundamentally a rice and black eyed peas dish. Black eyed peas are considered to bring luck when eaten on New years Day. This is a vegetarian version and has some mild Indian flavors.
