In the Southern United States, Hoppin’ John (a traditional soul food) is thought to bring prosperity in the New Year. The story goes, that the peas are supposed to bring you good luck and the greens are supposed to bring you money. I am not southern, but man do I love black eyed peas and I love greens so when I first read about this tradition, I was all over it.
This truly came together in 5 easy minutes. I doubled the recipe because we wanted leftovers. Literally, this is by far the easiest recipe ever. So easy my husband or 10 year old could probably follow it.
I recently signed up for the Engine 2 Meal Planner but I have yet to put it to the test. When the skies opened up and dumped a ton of rain on my kiddos and I after school the other day, I decided that it was the perfect time to test out one of the recipes that I had bookmarked, Pasta e Fagioli! Soup during a downpour just sounded amazing.
Set it and forget it with limited chopping is what I love most of all about this appliance. Here is an easy five ingredient meal that came together based on what I had left in my pantry. It was delicious, it was easy and it was fast!
This easy, one pot meal is great for a Sunday dinner. You could serve this with mashed potatoes and gravy, or just enjoy the vegetables in the broth created by slow roasting. We love having this dish when company is coming. Thick steak-like slices of the cauliflower offer up a hearty meal.
This lasagna is SO amazing, your family will literally be raising the roof in celebration! To make this recipe Seven-Day Rescue Challenge compliant, omit the tofu and use more sweet potato, and skip the cashews and top with nutritional yeast.
