How to make it

  • The black-eyed peas ([1] 15.5oz can) should be drained, rinsed and make sure they are relatively moisture free. RESERVE 1/2 cup of beans.
  • Heat a pan and saute the diced green onion, diced red bell pepper, minced garlic cloves, pressed ginger root on medium high until soft.
  • -- note: To prepare the ginger root, cut about 1/2" of root, peel, slice thinly and press in a garlic press.
  • Add the cooked veggies to the reserved black-eyed peas and mix well.
  • Mince the chipolte pepper and mix into reserved black-eyed peas. Toss thoroughly.
  • ---Note: DO NOT get this pepper on your hands and then touch your eyes or any other sensitive skin. Wash your hands very very well if you do touch the pepper.
  • Put the remaining 1 cup of black-eyed peas into a bowl and mash thoroughly.
  • Add the thyme, cayenne and salt to the reserved peas and mix again.
  • Squeeze the juice of the lemon into the mashed peas, and re-mash mixing thoroughly. Grate the zest of the lemon into the reserved black-eyed peas and mix well.
  • Add the pancake batter to the mashed peas and re-mash mix thoroughly.
  • Add the reserved pea mixture to the mashed peas along with 1/4 cup of the bread crumbs and mix thoroughly.
  • Reserve the remaining bread crumbs for coating the patties when you brown them.
  • Let the mixture chill in the refrigerator for at least an hour. With the chilled mixture, divide into 4 parts, form the patties, dust with remaining bread crumbs.
  • Put the patties back in the refrigerator to re-chill.
  • Pre-heat oven to 350. Heavily spray a cookie sheet with PAM. Place the patties on the baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes until browned.
