Hoppin' John with Smoked Tofu

Published April 26, 2018

Smoked tofu has a slightly dense, chewy texture and strong smoky flavor that makes an excellent substitute for the smoked ham hock traditional to hoppin’ John; cooking the tofu whole with the beans, then cutting it up, keeps it moist. This does require some prep (unless you make the peas ahead of time), but since many of us are home right now, it can easily go into the weeknight meal category.

Makes: 6-8 servings
Time: About 2 ½ hours, largely unattended
