Thai-style Hoppin’ John

Hom Big John (Thai-style Hoppin' John)

Hom Big-Jon

  • 3 cans of black eyed peas, rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 of a red, yellow, and orange pepper, diced
  • 1/3 – 1/2 of a red onion
  • 1 finger of ginger, minced
  • a handful of cilantro, destemmed and partially chopped
  • 1/2 cup of olive oil
  • 1/2 cup of Marukan citrus marinade (or the juice of 1 lime)
  • 1 cup of seasoned gourmet rice vinegar (Marukan)
  • 1 tsp salt

Let this sit overnight if you can. The flavors really mellow and sing after it marinates. Actually, if it sits for two or three days, it’s pure genius, or so the Hot Boyfriend tells me, but he might be biased. Wait, no. It’s genius.
