Mmmmm... this was comfort in a bowl. With every bite I took, I liked it more and more. I had kind of a stressful day today, involving an emergency tooth extraction for SweetPotato, so this was just what I needed for dinner. Food that's good for the soul and body.
My southern-style beans and greens are usually made with red beans, and my black-eyed peas usually go into some hoppin' john, so this dish was a slightly different take on my usual. It was satisfying and hearty, without being heavy.
Isa calls for kale or collards; I chose collards, if only for the sake of tradition. The only variation I made from the recipe (besides the usual no-oil routine) was to splash on a little more Cholula sauce before eating. Then, it was perfect.
