Categories     Dinner

Total Time 45 minutes

Prep Time 15 minutes

Cook Time 30 minutes

Yield 4

Number Of Ingredients 16

1 tbsp rapeseed oil
2 red onions, halved and sliced
4 chicken legs (about 1 kg in total), skin removed
1 tbsp fresh thyme leaves
1 tbsp Madras curry powder
1 tsp ground allspice
4 large tomatoes, chopped
1 red chilli, deseeded and sliced
2 garlic cloves, chopped
2 tsp vegetable bouillon
125g brown basmati
1 red onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1 tbsp fresh thyme leaves, plus extra to serve
1 tsp vegetable bouillon
400g can black-eyed beans

Steps:

  • Heat the oil in a very large non-stick frying pan and cook the onions for 5 mins or until soft. Meanwhile, coat the chicken thoroughly with the thyme, curry powder and allspice. Add to the pan and briefly brown the chicken, then tip in the tomatoes, chilli, garlic and bouillon. Pour over 450ml water, cover and simmer for 30 mins or until the chicken is tender.
  • Meanwhile, tip the rice into a medium-sized pan with the onion, garlic, thyme and bouillon. Pour in 600ml water, cover and cook for 25 mins or until the liquid has been absorbed and the rice is tender. Check toward the end of the cooking time to ensure it isn’t starting to catch on the pan. Stir in the beans and heat through. If you're following our Healthy Diet Plan, serve half the rice with half the chicken (saving the leftovers for a second meal later in the week). Otherwise you can serve four portions, scattered with a few extra thyme leaves, if you like.

HOPPIN' JOHN -- RICE AND BLACK-EYED PEAS RECIPE - FOOD.COM



Hoppin' John -- Rice and Black-Eyed Peas Recipe - Food.com image

I have heard all my life that one should eat black eyed peas on New Year's Day for good luck throughout the new year. It wasn't until I was in my early twenties that my father changed the dish from black eyed peas to Hoppin' John as our traditional New Year's Day good luck meal. It's simple, po' foke's food, and I love it any time of the year. In the directions, I will include substitutions to make this dish vegetarian/vegan. Some history of the dish can be found here --http://members.aol.com/RSRICHMOND/hoppingjohn.html -- It would seem most people cook the rice and peas seperately, and then combine the two to serve. That's how my dad does it. I wanted to cook the flavor of the black eyed peas into the rice. So, this recipe strays a little from the norm, in that I cook the rice with the peas already in the pan.

Total Time 40 minutes

Prep Time 10 minutes

Cook Time 30 minutes

Yield 4 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 7

1/2 lb bacon, cut in 1/2 inch pieces (I use a whole package)
1 medium onion, medium dice (a larger one is ok)
2 (15 ounce) cans black-eyed peas, with juice (1 qt if you cook your own peas)
2 cups uncooked rice
3 cups water
1/4 cup vegetable oil (for vegan)
2 teaspoons liquid smoke (for vegan)

Steps:

  • In a 4 qt or pan brown bacon and cook onion in bacon grease until the onion is transparent. ** For vegan, omit bacon and use approximately 1/4 cup of vegetable oil to cook onion.
  • Add uncooked rice, black eyed peas (with juice) and water to your bacon onion mixture. Mix well. **For vegan add liquid smoke at this point to replace the smoke flavor that would have been added by the bacon.
  • Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to medium.
  • When the tops of the bursting bubbles of boiling water are all of the liquid that can be seen above the rice, remove the pan from the heat and cover.
  • Wait at least twenty minutes, WITHOUT PEEKING!
  • Don't do it. You'll loose precious heat and steam.
  • Serve with bread of your choice, or with the veggies of your choice and plenty of hot sauce. Of course, the variety of hot sauce you choose will depend on your tolerance for heat. If you would like, this could be served as a side dish, as well.
