Hopping John – pressure cooker version

Makes two 400-calorie servings.

1-1/2 oz diced salt pork
1 onion, coarsely chopped
1/2 large green pepper, coarsely chopped
1/2 C dried black-eyed peas
1 C water
4 cloves garlic, chopped
1 C cooked brown rice

In a pressure cooker, cook the salt pork to render out some of the fat, then throw in the onion and pepper and cook briefly. Add the peas and water, lock the pressure cooker lid, and cook for 14 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand until pressure releases naturally, about 10 minutes.

Open the cooker and stir in the garlic and the rice. Serve with hot sauce.
