Bingo! When both your 22-year old AND 15-year old sons scarf down a dish, you know you’ve got something.
Last night I made the Hoppin’ John salad recipe from the Physician’s Committee for Responsible Medicine’s (PCRM’s) 21-day Vegan Kickstart program, and I’m here to tell you it’s a winner. Easy, filling, nourishing food– just the kind of thing I look for in a family week-night recipe.
It’s a rice salad with black-eyed peas (why don’t I use these more?), chopped scallions, celery, parsley and chopped tomatoes, with a garlicky, lemony dressing.
The 21-day kickstart started Monday, but it’s not too late to join. Each week, you’ll receive menus and recipes– and that’s why I joined, for the infusion of new, tried and true recipes. One does get tired of ones own cooking from time to time.
