Black-eyed peas are medium-sized, beige beans (in the field pea family) with black markings and a distinctive, delicate flavor all their own. In the American South, black-eyed peas are eaten with cabbage, turnip or collard greens, and pork and rice on New Year’s Day.
They are eaten for good luck on New Year's Day! This dish, called Hoppin’ John (which some say is derived from this legume’s French name, pois pigeon) is thought to bring wealth: The peas are said to symbolize coins and the greens, paper money. Black-eyed peas are very versatile and can be added to a variety of recipes, including soups, stews, and salads.
They are also high in polyphenols, which are compounds that act as antioxidants in the body to prevent cell damage and protect against disease
