Happy New Year! Recipes!!
I hope you've had a great start in this brand-new year! 2020 is going to be a wonderful year for my family - I just know it!
We had our obligatory good luck foods for lunch today: black-eyed peas and cabbage. I don't like either one of them. My hubby and oldest son agree.
But, wait! Today, we actually enjoyed them both!!
Let me share these two recipes with you. First, since we had hummus made of chick peas last week, I thought I might be able to find a recipe for black-eyed pea hummus.
I found a great one on Pinterest that came from Sharon at Grits and Pinecones. You can click this link to view her original recipe. Thanks, Sharon!!!
Black-Eyed Pea Hummus
2 cups cooked black-eyed peas rinsed and drained (I used frozen peas and cooked them on the stove top)
3 Tbsp fresh lemon juice (I used bottled lemon juice)
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 tsp kosher salt (I used 1/2 tsp of seasoned salt)
1/8 tsp ground cumin
2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil divided
2 Tbsp tahini sesame seed paste (I left this out)
1/8 tsp smoked paprika for garnish
Blend all ingredients and sprinkle top with paprika. Yummy!
I found this next recipe on Pinterest, as well. This dish is a cabbage soup and comes from Grallim.com. Here's your link to get there:
Hearty Cabbage Soup Recipe
1/2 head of cabbage (I used a whole head)
1 cup diced celery (I used dried celery)
1 cup diced onion
1 cup diced carrots
4-5 slices of diced bacon (I used real bacon bits)
3 cloves minced garlic
4 cups chicken broth
14 oz. can diced tomatoes with juice
1 tsp oregano
2 tsp basil (I substituted thyme)
2 bay leaves
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 stick butter
Saute onion, bacon, and celery in butter. Add remaining ingredients. Put lid on pot and cook until cabbage is done. Yum!!
Put these two little recipe gems in your back pocket for New Year's Day, 2021!
Wishing you a wonderful new year, and remember that kindness has the power to change the world!
