Hoppin’ John Quinoa Sliders

We are two weeks into the New Year and it’s time to pay homage to our lucky black-eyed peas!

Hoppin’ John is a peas and rice dish made with black-eyed peas, onion, bacon, spices and sometimes greens like collard greens, Swiss chard or kale. The dish, traditionally served in the South, is meant to bring about a prosperous and lucky year. So I wanted to give this traditional dish a unique healthy twist that lives up to everyone’s New Year’s resolution to be healthier in 2015!
