FEED THE RESISTANCE: HIPPIE JOHN & TYRANENA’S MANGY FOX

Written by on January 7, 2022

Feed The Resistance: “Hippie John” is paired with “Mangy Fox” from Tyranena Brewing Co.

 

In the south, “Hoppin’ John” is served on New Year’s Day.  Hoppin’ John is made with Black-Eyed Peas, Ham Hocks, Onions and some Stock.  I always serve it alongside some good southern Collard Greens.  Legend has it, serving Hoppin’ John on New Year’s Day will bring good luck in the coming year.

What I made today is a little bit of a different take on Hoppin’ John, called “Hippie John.”  Hippie John is a vegetarian version of Hoppin’ John, and it turns it into more of a salad that can be enjoyed anytime of the year…it’s NOT just for New Year’s Day!  Instead of the Collard Greens on the side, this recipe mixes Chard right into the dish, along with Carrots, Red Bell Pepper and Brown Rice.  In my version, I replaced the Brown Rice with Quinoa.

Here’s my New Year’s Day HOPPIN’ John…

And here’s the HIPPIE John Salad, and the Beer Dee paired with it…
