Holidays in the south are steeped in tradition and superstition. Case in point, feasting on your favorite recipe for black eyed peas and collard greens on New Year’s Day. Everyone I have ever known in the south shares this tradition in the hopes that this simple feast will bring them prosperity, good luck, and good fortune in the coming year. While I’m not 100% sure it really works, I’ll jump at any chance to increase my odds of luck in the new year! Of course, I couldn’t resist putting my own modern spin on this southern classic with these Collard Green and Black Eyed Pea Hummus Tostadas!
Honestly, I don’t think I’ve ever had a beans and green feast that tasted as good as this one! It all starts out with Guerrero’s Baked Tostadas with Sea Salt that are smothered in smoky black eyed pea hummus then topped with roasted sweet potato, Jammy Instant Pot Collard Greens, toasted pecans and hot pickled cherry peppers.
Every single bite of these tostadas are like a firework show for your taste buds! Which I guess is pretty darn appropriate considering the time of year it is. Here’s to a tasty and prosperous 2018 full of good eats, good health, and hopefully a little good luck too.
