These little one-eyed wonders are known by different names: black-eye peas, beans, or cowpeas. Whatever you call them in your neck of the woods, and however you fix them, they are delicious!

Eating black-eye peas is a Southern New Year’s Day tradition that is supposed to grant you prosperity during the coming year; however, eating them all year long is not only good luck, but also good for you! Use them in Texas caviar, chili, or Hoppin’ John, but make sure you have them in your pantry to use often in your meals.

Black-eyed peas are nutrient dense and are high in folate, fiber, protein, potassium, magnesium, calcium, vitamin A, and B vitamins and are low in fat and calories.
