Those of us from the South know Black Eyed Peas and Collard Greens can be enjoyed year round, not just at New Year's. I've enjoyed them with my family all months of the year, but it's especially fun around Jan 1st when you believe stuffing your face with them will bring you money and good luck in the coming year.
Those of you who are regular TPL readers (thank you!) know that I adore Garnish & Gather (seenhere and here). Garnish & Gather is a service that sources local items from farms and gives you everything you need to make the featured meal that week. This week's recipe by Chef Nick Melvin is called "Good Luck Soup with Bacon, Collards & Black Eyed Peas," and it is delicious. Emily Golub, the founder of G & G, gave me permission to start featuring some of the meals on here, and I am so excited! What an awesome treat for you guys! The food is as good as any restaurant food, and you can make it at home. Holla.
Without further ado, I give you "Good Luck Soup."Read More
