Collard Green III + Black-Eyed Pea II

Collard Greens & Black-Eyed Peas: Two peas in a pod; plant power couples; Valentine's Day; plant power couples

The month of February is often associated with Valentine's Day and all things love-related. Regardless of your affection or disdain for this holiday, we can probably all agree that we love food, especially our plant friends.  In honor of plant foods that pair well together, all of our February cartoons will feature plant power couples.

For good luck, we would like to introduce collard greens and black-eyed peas as our first plant power couple. A customary combination enjoyed on New Year's Day in the Southern United States, collard greens and black-eyed peas represent money and eating them can ensure wealth in the new year.  It is never too late to whip up some collard greens and black-eyed peas, so check out this Lucky Stew by Amy Stefani at No Whey No Cow.
