Black Eye Veggie Burger (Vegan, Oil Free)

I have been looking to incorporate a larger array of legumes into my recipes and today is the day of the black eyed pea. I am a big fan of black eyed peas, and I find that I am able to use them in a lot of different recipe that might call for black beans. Most of you know how much I love making great bean burgers, so I wanted to share my easy black eye veggie burger recipe. I am planning on making a few of these burgers for a couple get togethers that I have planned for watching the remaining college football bowl games and the last few weeks of the NFL season. If you are not a fan of black eyed peas, make sure to check out a few of my other burger recipes including my "Go Big Red Bean Burger" and porkless burgers. I really enjoy adding different variations of spices to my veggie burgers, so feel free to get creative and if you go ahead and give this recipe a try let me know what you think and share a picture on my facebook page of how it turned out for you.

Here's what you will need!

  • 3 cups of cooked black eyed peas (drained & rinsed)

  • 1 cup of cooked brown rice

  • 1 cup of raw quick cooking oats

  • 1 tbs soy sauce

  • 1 tbs ketchup

  • 2 tsp garlic powder

  • 2 tsp onion powder

  • 2 tsp paprika

  • 1/4 tsp black pepper

  • Stand mixer or large mixing bowl

Directions:

  1. Add the black eyed peas into a large bowl

  2. Mash the peas until there are no whole beans left

  3. Add in the rest of the ingredients
