Black Eyed Peas With Ham, Brown Rice & Arugula

Happy new year 2012!  Hopefully you all enjoyed the holidays and all the delicious food that comes with it. Maybe you are wondering what to do with all your leftovers. Here’s a quick shot of what I had for lunch today, made from my leftover new years’ black-eyed peas and holiday ham.


Cooked brown rice

Slow-cooked or canned black-eyed peas

Diced ham

Olive oil

Splash of chicken stock

Fresh arugula


Heat the diced ham in a skillet with olive oil. Add the cooked brown rice, black-eyed peas and a splash of chicken stock to add moisture. Heat all ingredients thoroughly and serve in bowls topped with fresh baby arugula.
