Best Down-home Vegetable Selection

Hoover's Cooking

We can't vouch for the true "vegetarian nature" of Hoover's vegetable side dishes, but boy can we vouch for their flavor! The jalapeño-spiked creamed spinach is downright decadent, and the green beans stewed in bacon fat remind us of trips to grandma's house back when pork fat wasn't frowned upon. If starch is more up your alley, dip into a plate of hot, creamy cheese grits, then go ahead and indulge in a big bowl of crisp fried okra or super-buttery carrots.
