This delightful dish is featured in the deep south, and shows up again in Alaska as a dining choice for any meal. After the dish is together, if you wish to add additional protein, do so. If feeding mixed company (vegans, vegetarians and omnivores) I add nothing further, or extra firm organic tofu, cut into ½ " cubes. If those dining on the dish are sensitive to beans and produce gas readily, they could be offered some Beano, or my personal favorite, Wobenzyme. Both are digestive aids.
Recipe type: Side dish or Entree
Cuisine: American, everywhere except on the northeast coast and Hawaii.
