    2       c            Black-eyed Peas, cooked
      1/2   c            Rice, white or brown
    1 1/2   c            Water
      1/2   c            Celery, chopped
      1/2   c            Onion, chopped, or
      1/4   c            Green pepper, chopped
                         4-5 green spring onions, chp
    4       oz           Mushrooms, sliced, canned
    2       ts           Poultry Seasoning
    4                    Tomatoes, crushed
      1/2   ts           Red pepper, crushed (opt)
   Directions: Combine ingredients in a stockpot or
   crockpot, and cook until rice is done, about 45
   minutes to 1 hour. A little more liquid may have to be
   added. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking as the
   mixture thickens whichever method is used. In
   crockpot, cook about 4 hours on high, and 6-7 hours on
   low heat.
   Cook’s Note:  In any authentic Southern cookbook,
   there will almost always be a recipe for Hoppin' John,
   which is basically a combination of rice and black-
   eyed peas. To this basic recipe, each cook will add
   his/her personal touches and I have added mine. White
   rice is traditional, but brown rice has more fiber.
   Tomatoes are optional. Mushrooms are a modern touch.
   In some areas, red pepper sauce or tabasco sauce
   replaces the crushed red pepper.  In Texas, Purple
   Hull peas are frequently used, with Picante Sauce
   served on the side. In Louisiana, Red Beans and Rice
   are the popular combination. In other places, is found
   the combination of black beans and rice as the popular
