The American Classic, Lightened Up
Two Southern staples, Dirty Rice (which usually includes chicken) and Hoppin' John (a bacon-boosted rice), come together in this grain-based dish. It also incorporates superseed quinoa, as well as black-eyed peas. For an even heartier meal, add some cooked (crumbled or chopped) vegan or vegetarian sausage just before serving, which—bonus!—also adds great flavor.
